London, United Kingdom, February 04, 2017 --( Bringing in voices from the industry's best clinical specialists, strategists and statisticians, SMi’s 9th Adaptive Designs in Clinical Trials conference will feature case studies that will evaluate the strength and pitfalls of leading adaptive design approaches in medical device development.

On day one of the conference, Giacomo Mordenti, Global Biometrics Director at Livanova, will be presenting on the adaptive design of device clinical trials. He will be discussing the operational and logistical pitfalls in device development, significant differences to consider between adaptive devices and drug development, and case studies of Baysian statistics in practise in devices.

On day two of the conference, Berry Consulting’s Director of Statistical Software, Tom Parke, will present a talk on Bayesian adaptive trials for medical device and pharmaceutical trials. He will be discussing the design, modelling and simulation of Bayesian methods in drug and device clinical trials plus platform and master protocol designs.
