Nov 05, 2014
Hamilton, NJ — MedAvante, Inc., a leading provider of technology-enabled signal detection solutions in global clinical trials of treatments for central nervous system (CNS) disorders, announced today it will be presenting at the Cavendish Global Health Impact Forum taking place November 10-13th at Oxford University in the United Kingdom. The purpose of the Forum is to help family offices and foundations develop and implement their individual pro-social impact investing, grant-giving, and philanthropy programs within health and the life sciences.

“MedAvante is pursuing a unique and worthy mission of helping to ensure that better and safer treatments will reach the patients who need them faster,” said Michael Moffat, Cavendish co-founder and President. “We are glad they will be at Oxford to share their important story of the systemic risks in clinical trials that can prevent new treatments from conclusively proving their efficacy. MedAvante’s empirically based solution for this serious problem positions them to make a major contribution to improving the treatment of not only mental health disorders but also a wide range of conditions across many therapeutic areas.”

“We are honored to be selected as a partner in this unique community and we very much look forward to telling our story at Oxford,” said Paul M. Gilbert, MedAvante Chief Executive Officer. “Being included in the Cavendish community is powerful recognition of the innovative approach we’ve developed to improving the global drug development process by allowing promising new treatments a better opportunity to demonstrate their ability to benefit patients. We welcome the chance to interact with many of world’s leading scientific minds, thought-leaders and generous individuals and families who are all dedicated to the common cause of improving the health and lives of people around the world and who have the ability to assist MedAvante in making an important contribution to global health.”
