Renowned Hematological Oncologist Works to Advance Patient Care and Improve Therapy Development

The development of innovative therapies calls for innovative teams with clinical expertise, a passion for patient care and the vision to create medicine that has the potential to positively affect patient populations of one to one million. For these reasons, UBC welcomes Don Gabriel , MD, PhD, to our Global Clinical Development & Operations team.


Reflecting on UBC’s Growth in Europe

You’ve heard it a thousand times in our business: You’re not buying the service, you’re buying the people. I was fortunate enough to build our clinical team in Europe from the ground up, so I know better than anyone how true that statement is.

When I joined the organisation in 2008, I was the first European-based employee for UBC. I rented offices in a three-story, converted Victorian house in central London, which we still fondly refer to as the “old house,” and started seeking talented professionals to join me.

As technology takes an even greater hold of healthcare, big data and its uses within all facets of improving patient care is instigating an evolution. Manufacturers are feeling more pressure to realize continued success, while streamlining processes and cutting costs. As these pressures build, traditional methods in clinical development are no longer providing desired results. To achieve more impact, the industry is being asked to take a fresh look at standard processes and the available data.


Expert Advice for Rapid Study Start-Up

When working to operationalize clinical trial studies, the slower to launch, the more potential profit your company is losing. And although site identification is a key hurdle in getting studies off the ground, preparing a study is not a one-pronged approach. Take a minute to think about this analogy: Most people would be ecstatic to own a new luxury car, but what good is it without fuel to get it started?


Technology in Registries and Observational Studies - What You Should be Considering (Part II)

The increased use and importance of observational studies necessitates sponsor evaluation of standard operating procedures for clinical trials. Often the focus of that evaluation is on methodology, structure, and resulting evidence, but it is just as critical that the technology details be evaluated as well. In the second part of our series, we examine additional facets that should be considered during development of platforms for registries and observational programs.


Understanding the Natural History of Disease

In-depth study and understanding of the disease or condition for which a drug or biologic is being developed is essential to the scientific foundation of any clinical development program.  That’s why incorporating a natural history of disease study to evaluate patients who have been diagnosed with a specific condition or disease is well worth manufacturers’ time and effort.

A natural history study is a way to:
