Join Chicago Booth Insights in Boston as John R. Birge, Jerry W. and Carol Lee Levin Professor of Operations Management at Chicago Booth, discusses how to streamline the process of drug approval and customizing medicine. Professor Birge has been co-developing a model for clinical trials that could speed up research, save money, and even allow treatments for patients to be customized in order to best fit their care. This would greatly impact the current traditional clinical trial process which for new drugs is increasingly expensive and lengthy. From 1995 to 2005, the average length of a clinical trial increased by 70 percent, and the cost of a single trial went up to as much as $100 million. Register here.

This event is part of UChicago Innovation Fest, a month-long celebration of entrepreneurship and discovery around the University of Chicago. With more than 40 events scheduled across Chicago and in other key cities around the world, we welcome you to join us as we explore solutions to big problems, brainstorm ways to scale impact, and connect with leaders in business, science, healthcare, tech, and more.

This annual festival is led by UChicago’s top leaders in innovation, including the Polsky Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation, the Institute for Translational Medicine, the Social Enterprise Initiative at Chicago Booth, and the Office of Research, Innovation and National Laboratories.
