22-Feb-16

The #ACDM16 Annual Conference is pleased to have three significant key note speakers joining us for this year's conference. Between them we see demonstrated outstanding motivation, innovation and best practice from speakers:

 Martyn AshtonMartyn Ashton - former British and World Champion mountain bike trials rider, stunt rider and team manager, has been credited with turning trials from a niche form of riding into the sport it is today. Martyn was paralysed in an accident in 2013, during a bike trials demo at the British Moto GP and kindly attends our conference to share his journey since then. He believes that a cure for Spinal Cord Injury will be one of the most dramatic achievements in our history, and it’s only with first-class clinical trials will this become a reality.

 Gary Acton
Gary Acton-
successful author and broadcaster who studied medicine at Oxford and London, and held senior oncology positions within London hospitals. Having been involved in cancer medicine within the biotechnology industry & working on some of the most innovative drugs of the era, Gary will explore the issues and implications for us in this, the 'Molecular Millennium'. How we are rewriting the laws of biology, though the provision of pharmacologically futuristic new drugs, many of which were unimaginable even a decade ago. Finally how an acceleration of innovation, producing a remorseless, exponential, expansion of promising new agents, and the requirement of an ideological reinterpretation of our approach to oncology drug development.

 Joshua Sharlin
Joshua Sharlin
- former US-FDA reviewer, who has worked in the software development industry, taught programming for SAS Institute and audited companies for compliance. He has also provided technical and regulatory support to US-FDA-regulated drug and medical devices companies. Double programming is, without a doubt, the most popular method of testing SAS code in an FDA-regulated environment. But is it the best and most economical solution? Is it relevant for the applications used within Data Management? What do the regulatory agencies expect for validation of the various different types of Data Management programs? Dr.  Sharlin will review methods of testing SAS code within the Data Management environment, discussing their advantages and disadvantages and offer advice and opinions on points to consider when evaluating a SAS testing strategy.

Only a few weeks remaining, don’t miss out on your chance to learn and be inspired by these exceptional key note presentations.
