Organizers: Vishal Deshmukh, PhD and Yifei Dai, PhD, ORS Industry Engagement Committee
This workshop aims to prepare emerging/next generation investigators with fundamentals and forward-looking views regarding conducting high quality orthopedic related clinical research. Attendees will learn the design and conduct of clinical trials under Good Clinical Practice (GCP), associated scientific and regulatory principles, trial and site management, as well as statistical analysis of the trial data. Latest game-changing features of modern clinical trials, enabled by the advancements in digital technology, Artificial intelligence (AI), and machine learning (ML) will be discussed regarding future advancing of the clinical trials.
The faculties also will share their expert experiences and insights on conducting clinical trials under various roles (trial designer, regulatory body, study operator/manager, collaborator, and data scientist) and perspectives (clinical leadership vs researchers, surgeon vs academia vs industry).
This workshop provides ORS investigators the needed fundamentals and exciting novel research skills to further advance the ORS goal of developing musculoskeletal discovery and research to improve health.
