Slides: East User Group Meeting and Trial Design Symposium

December 4, 2017


In 2011, Cytel organized its first East User Group Meeting (EUGM) in Paris. Since then, we have held an EUGM almost every year, alternating between locations in Europe and North America.  These meetings have been a great success, giving opportunities for customers and industry colleagues to meet each other as well as with key opinion leaders, whilst learning more about our East software and providing critical feedback. 

This year, the EUGM was held in Cambridge MA on the 25th and 26th of October. In this blog we are delighted to share the slides from some of the speakers' presentations. 

The first day took place at Biogen and consisted of keynote presentations from Sandeep Menon (Pfizer), Matt Austin (Amgen), Bob Beckman (Georgetown University), Peng Sun (Biogen), and Ed Whalen (Pfizer), as well as Jim Bolognese, Yannis Jemiai, and Cyrus Mehta from Cytel. The talks spanned a range of hot topics that resonated with our audience, including dose finding, enrollment modeling, basket trials, adaptive designs, and safety monitoring. At the hands-on East workshop on the second day, attendees enjoyed seminars by Hrishikesh Kulkarni, Charles Liu, and Cyrus Mehta.

The agenda was developed and organized over many months by the Scientific Committee, chaired by Zoran Antonijevic (Amgen), and included Jeff Palmer (Pfizer), Ih Chang (Biogen), Karthi Thangavelu (Sanofi), Lei Gao (Sanofi), and Hrishikesh Kulkarni and Charles Liu from Cytel.  Thank you to everyone who helped make this event a success.
