The value of Master Protocols has become understood and accepted through unprecedented multi-stakeholder response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Over 300 clinical studies were set up in record time, including several Master Protocols for both therapeutics and vaccines. Suddenly, the ability to form productive consortia became a critical path challenge to implement quantitative innovations provided by Master Protocols. This session will focus on the underlying trends transforming Master Protocol studies and clinical research.

Learning Objective : At the conclusion of this session, participants should be able to:
  • Identify the role of Master Protocols in COVID-19 therapeutic and vaccine development
  • Identify recent developments in stakeholders’ attitudes and perceptions of Master Protocol studies
  • Identify factors that will influence the successful design and implementation of Master Protocol studies
