Keynote Speaker's

Dr. Ben Goldacre:

PhUSE are excited to announce Dr. Ben Goldacre, author of 'Bad Pharma' as Keynote Speaker for the Annual Conference 2013.

Dr. Ben Goldacre is an award-winning Writer, Broadcaster and Medical Doctor who specalises in unpicking scientific claims made by scaremongering journalists, government reports, pharmaceutical corporations, PR companies and quacks. He trained in Medicine at Oxford and London and currently works as an Academic in Epidemiology.

Between 2003 - 2011 Ben wrote the Bad Science column within the Guardian and his book Bad Science (4th Estate) has sold over half a million copies worldwide, has been published in 25 languages and reached #1. In his new book, Bad Pharma (4th Estate, September 2012) Ben puts the $600bn global pharmaceutical industry under the microscope - what he reveals is a fascinating, terrifying mess.

Dr. Ben Goldacre will speak at the PhUSE conference about how patient centric thinking will help to bring efficacious new drugs to patients. In keeping with his latest book, Ben's keynote will share his views on the process of new drug approval. He will tell the PhUSE community how flaws in the planning, conduct and publication of studies conducted by the pharmaceutical industry can actually harm the life of patients.

Over the last few years, several requirements (such as the result reporting on have been implemented with the good intention to increase the transparency and reduction of publication bias. Dr Ben Goldacre, will talk about the effectiveness of these changes, sharing his ideas on what additional necessary changes (e.g. increased data transparency as discussed in the EMA workshop in November 2012) need to be implemented in the drug approval process. His speech will cover all the involved parties: the patients, pharmaceutical drug companies, regulatory bodies and payers.
