GSK are always searching for ways to support and improve the clinical trials process for patients, hospitals and research institutions, and for GSK. Clinical studies are often complex in order to understand all of the benefits and risks about a new medicine. This complexity can be the number of visits to hospitals, the number of questionnaires that need to be completed, the number of assessments completed at each hospital visit or the times & frequency at which the medication should be taken. This complexity can sometimes make it difficult for patients and their healthcare professionals to adhere to the protocol that sets out the way that the study should be conducted.
GSK is looking for new technologies and methodologies that can help patients and their healthcare professionals through the clinical trial process. This may be to complete all the tasks required of them or to ensure that they take the medication. It will also be helpful to consider the blockers that get in the way of patients and healthcare professionals when taking part in a clinical trial.
Successful applicants with viable proposals with sufficient experience in the clinic will be invited to present their proposal to a group within GSK. Subsequently, if the idea is sufficiently mature with experience in clinical, there may be opportunities to scope a prototype within GSK and even to pilot the innovation within a GSK clinical study.
