Key Takeaways from the BIO International Convention 2022

Key Takeaways from the BIO International Convention 2022

Nicole Brenna, US Business Development Director, represented Cromos Pharma at the BIO International Convention. Please read her key takeaways from the event.

“This was my first BIO conference in person and it was great meeting Sponsors and our partners from all over the world. It was definitely nice to finally shake hands and exchange business cards, as everything over the last two years has been virtual. 

The BIO One-on-One Partnering was very beneficial as it allowed for individuals to speak one-on-one for 30 minutes without interruption. I have noticed in the past at conferences, it can be quite difficult to find a quiet place to speak about study details without others hearing, so the individual partnering rooms was the perfect solution. 

There was a lot of discussion around patient diversity in clinical trials and the importance of including this in studies. Decentralized clinical trials continues to be a hot topic, as we slowly come out of the pandemic. I spoke with a lot of Sponsors who are working in the rare disease space and they stressed how enrollment can be quite challenging.  With that being said, it was great to hear Venus Williams speak about her personal struggle with having a rare disease and how she functions daily and keeps a positive outlook on life,” said Nicole Brenna.
