Diverse study populations are vital to generate evidence for the efficacy and safety of new therapies. However, racial, ethnic and gender diversity have historically been underrepresented in clinical research. Please join us for an evening of discussion with our esteemed panel as we explore the importance of clinical trial diversity, the solutions to remove the barriers and the implications for research and ultimately patients.
