Immuno-oncology breakthroughs: from precision medicine to modulating the tumor microenvironment

The European Association for Cancer Research (EACR) explores the most exciting cancer research from Europe and globally. Clarivate Life Sciences Editor Joan Tur reviews the top three trends from their recent immuno-oncology event, and their implications for the future of cancer treatment. Despite pandemic-driven clinical trial delays across multiple therapy areas, novel immuno-oncology approaches continue […]

Biomarkers have several key roles in clinical trials and precision medicine

Biomarker use in clinicals trials has expanded over the last few decades. Designing a protocol that incorporates biomarkers can reduce trial timelines and increase the chance of success. However, biomarkers remain underutilized for a variety of reasons. Evaluating the trends in biomarker use allows us to monitor the effectiveness of new strategies and identify areas […]

Organ-specific toxicity and personalized approaches

In part two of this blog series about best practices in toxicology, we continue the discussion from the previous post, which described the aspects of drug discovery that could impact safety. Because safety can vary by person and organ, we also need to identify how we can determine a drug’s potential toxic effects on specific […]

Life sciences innovation: What is it? How do we track it? How do we get more?

Most people working in biopharmaceutical R&D would agree that innovation is important. But, what is innovation? Googling “What is innovation?” returns more than a billion hits. Focusing on the top search result from the Google dictionary doesn’t add further insight: “the action or process of innovating.” However, in producing The Life Sciences Innovation Report: A […]
