​Dr. Martin Pan

Using big data to define and validate real world outcomes in Alzheimer’s disease

Dr. Martin Pan from Biogen discusses how it is critical that current research methods and health-related data systems are evaluated for their ability to increase our understanding of Alzheimer’s disease across the spectrum of the disease. The ROADMAP project therefore first evaluates appropriate outcome measures based on existing data, which will later inform a second phase including prospective data generation. Through this process, trial and observational study design decisions can be properly informed, enhancing health care systems to evaluate new interventions as they become available.
