Can Digital Evidence Replace Clinical Evidence? - A "Straight from the Source" Webinar
Join FDA’s Tina Morrison and Axendia’s Daniel R. Matlis for a live webinar on September 18th at 11:00 AM ET.

FDA is encouraging the use of “Digital Evidence” to inform clinical trial designs, predict clinical outcomes, support demonstration of safety and effectiveness, identify relevant patient populations, and support regulatory submissions.

Digital evidence from in silico clinical trials have been shown to produce similar results as human clinical trials and under certain circumstances may replace clinical evidence.

We will discuss FDA’s perspective on:

* Shifting from traditional evidence sources to digital evidence
* How to create virtual patients with digital evidence to replace clinical evidence
* Examples of digital evidence in Pharma and Medical Device used in FDA to initiate and augment clinical studies
* Creating an in silico clinical trial Playbook
* Why data in PDF’s are not sufficient

Can't make this time? Register and you will be able to watch the On-Demand recording after the event.

Sep 18, 2019 11:00 AM in Eastern Time (US and Canada)

Tina Morrison, Ph.D.
Deputy Director, Division of Applied Mechanics, OSEL, CDRH @U.S. Food and Drug Administration
During her 11 years at the FDA, Tina has been working to advance the role of computer modeling and simulation in medical device design and product evaluation. She chairs the FDA Modeling and Simulation working group, and advises CDRH on simulation research and policy efforts. Additionally, Tina has led the development of pathways for enhancing modeling credibility and acceptance. For instance, she led the development a verification and validation standard for ASME, which culminated in 2018 with the first-ever set of evaluating procedures for computational modeling of medical devices, the ASME V&V 40 standard. Because of these efforts, Tina was selected as the 2019 Federal Engineer of the Year for FDA. She is the Deputy Director of the Division of Applied Mechanics in FDA’s Office of Science and Engineering Laboratories. She chairs the ASME Verification and Validation Committee, and is an Associate Editor for the Journal on Verification, Validation and Uncertainty Quantification.
