This week in the Pharmcast, we caught up with Dr. Tim Franson to discuss the leading edge of rare disease drug development.
Dr. Franson has been actively helping Parent Project Muscular Dystrophy, a Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy Patient Advocacy group, which is doing pioneering work collaborating with FDA to inform benefit-risk and establish FDA guidance.
Duchenne has been a great test case, so we sat down with Dr. Franson to share his lessons learned and understand what’s happening on the frontiers of rare disease drug development.
This week on The Pharmcast, we tackle one of the hottest topics in the life sciences and healthcare industry: digital health. The promise of digital health is enticing, and a logical evolution of the digital economy. However, some of the early euphoria is waning as the demands of implementation, application and ROI are becoming more important, and in some cases - more elusive.
So what is the current state of digital health for life sciences? What're some of the obstacles life sciences companies have to overcome to drive adoption? And what're some of the most promising applications of digital health for the life science companies? These are all questions we discuss with this week's guest, Dr. Ron Razmi.
