LEAPS virtual Design Lab highlights growth of the project from design to action with Testbed activities

A virtual Design Lab held on June 10 and 11 highlighted progress made in moving from design to application of key elements of a LEAPS learning system within our safe haven testbed environment. Expanding from our Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) pilots, we are testing our RWE regimen optimization design principles in other therapeutic areas from COVID to depression to lipid management and cancer tumor profiling. This event provided important input from our collaborator community on the consolidation of our next steps into two central pillars of innovation for application to RA and other diseases.

Kay Larholt spoke on the webinar panel “Measuring Real-World Effectiveness and Value in Precision Medicine” hosted by the USC Schaeffer Center on June 17. The panel focused on planning, production, and use of Real-World Evidence for down-stream stakeholders with an emphasis on regimen optimization – i.e., getting the right treatment to the right patient at the right time. The panel was moderated by Darius Lakdawalla and also included Meghan O’Brien and others. Learn more about the discussion.


The next LEAPS Design Lab will be held on November 30–December 1. By invitation only.
