Harvard-MIT Regulatory Science Symposium
TBD

Location: American Academy of Arts and Sciences, Cambridge MA
Organized by: Peter Sorger and Laura Maliszewski
Contact: hits@harvard.edu
This all-day day symposium will gather together the Boston-area community in regulatory science. The program will feature faculty speakers from multiple institutions across the full spectrum of regulatory science activities and will include active, moderated discussion to identify where the Center should focus in the coming year.

The FDA defines regulatory science as “the science of developing new tools, standards, and approaches to assess the safety, efficacy, quality, and performance of all FDA-regulated products.” Within this guidance regulatory science will require many elements of translational medicine including innovation in measurement, trials focused on evidence generation and analysis of policies and their impact. This all-hands meeting will promote dialogue among Center members and build connections to other individuals in the broader research community. A summary paper will capture the major findings of the meeting and our agreed priority areas for 2017.

If you are interested in speaking at this event, please contact Laura as soon as possible (laura_maliszewski@hms.harvard.edu).

Cancer Immunotherapy: Adverse events, Novel Biomarkers and T Cell Biology Building expertise in the diagnosis and management of adverse events during IO therapy
TBD

Organized by: Nicole LeBoeuf, MD, MPH (NLEBOEUF@partners.org)
Interlocutor: Peter Sorger, PhD 
Contact: hits@harvard.edu

This one-day workshop will discuss the toxicity associated with cancer immunotherapy, focusing on the latest generation of anti-PD1/CTLA4 checkpoint inhibitors. Clinical presentation, underlying biology and future prospects for management will be discussed in a series of platform presentations and panel discussions designed to promote audience interaction. We will critically evaluate the premise that adverse effect is closely related to, and thereby predictive of, therapeutic effect. Strategies for identifying biomarkers of therapeutic and severe adverse effects will also be discussed.

The power of Baysian models for collection of real world evidence and novel platform trial structures to provide sustainable funding for clinical investigation
TBD

Organized by: Brian Alexander, MD MPH (Brian_Alexander@dfci.harvard.edu)
Contact: hits@harvard.edu
An increasing number of novel clinical trial designs have been created along a spectrum from clinical practice to clinical research. The potential to create novel learning environments is substantial, but there is much work to be done to optimize the design, conduct, analysis, and reporting of such trials and platforms.

This 1.5-day workshop will focus on issues related to clinical trial infrastructures, such as platform trials, that are organized around specific diseases and the opportunities that they create. Specific topics of roundtable discussions will focus on technical, policy, and regulatory issues related to new models that blur clinical research and clinical practice, clinical trial simulations of Bayesian trials, novel financing opportunities, communication of complex design results, introducing clinical trial elements into clinical practice, data synthesis from multiple sources, and the role of government.
