Design Thinking is a human centered approach to innovation that helps uncover the sweet spot of opportunity where the needs of people, the possibilities of technology and the requirements for business success all converge. The application of the Design Thinking methodology (originating out of Stanford’s d.School) as a new approach to looking at solutions can lead to disruptive innovation in clinical trials for drug development. It allows for designing new ways of working, including the needs, challenges and insights about the complex world we work in.
In this discussion, we introduce the basic principals of Design Thinking and an understanding of how the methodology teaches empathy for the end user (the patients). We explore its ability to reframe questions and unleash innovative thinking as well as the "downside" of creative tension. Most importantly, we address how Design Thinking can drive more successful trials.

Our guest on Monday, February 10, 2014 is David Fuehrer. Dave is a two-time testicular cancer survivor and President of CureLauncher, a company he cofounded. Prior to doing so, Dave spent 10 years developing new products across North America, China and Europe for Pfizer, General Electric, Dow and many others.
Dave will share his mission to solve the clinical trial enrollment problem that currently exists in the United States. His company and website connects people to lifesaving medical treatments that they might otherwise be unaware exist. Some of the best medical treatment can be found in clinical trials, but few know or trust them enough to seek them out.
Join us as we discuss the myths and invaluable services CureLauncher and clinical trials provides to patients and the medical community.

In order to have new drugs to help with cancers and rare diseases, we have to first try them out in Clinical Trials. The design process of clinical trials is somewhat cumbersome and is often inherently controversial. We want to make sure that the trial gives us the information on safety and effectiveness that we will want to know once it goes on the market. At the same time we don’t want to over-complicate the clinical trial process and take too long to approve drugs that are doing well.
Billy Foster is in a clinical trial and has had a good response to the drug he is taking. Through his involvement with programs through the Kidney Cancer Association (KCA) and the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) he has become aware of built-in disparities in the design of most clinical tri
