Selecting CNS Endpoint Measures in Pediatric and Rare Disease Trials: Considerations for Cognitive and Behavioral Assessments, New Webinar Hosted by Xtalks

Xtalks Life Science Webinars

Testing new medicines in children and patients with rare diseases presents considerable challenges, not the least of which is proper endpoint selection and measurement. With the recent rapid growth of pediatric and rare disease trials, the pharmaceutical industry is now particularly considering the assessment of cognition and behavior in pediatric populations.

In this live webinar, Dr. Pamela Ventola, Senior Science Director of Pediatrics and Rare Disease at Cogstate will share her two decades of experience in developmental disabilities and pediatric neuropsychology, including strategies and approaches for selecting cognitive and behavioral measures that are appropriate for infants through adolescents. Specifically, she will describe key factors in test selection, as well as developmental and age-related considerations. Dr. Ventola will address traditional neuropsychological and behavioral measures for both safety and efficacy endpoints, as well as computerized cognitive batteries.

Join our expert speaker on Thursday, May 17, 2018 at 11 a.m. EDT (4 p.m. BST/UK) for an insightful and interactive presentation.
