How life sciences companies are reimagining trials during the biggest health crisis in a century
Whatever the world was like on March 15, it’s not like that now — and it probably won’t be for months or years. Everything from buying groceries to renewing a driver’s license is completely different from the way we did things just a few months ago.

This is where artificial intelligence (AI) can play a vital role in changing how clinical trials are conducted and how therapies are evaluated and tested.
