Research Objectives

PONTE aims at providing a platform that will:

  • enable the development of a research question into a clinical trial in an effective manner
  • effectively guide clinical researchers through clinical trial protocol writing by:
    • providing intelligent decision support at multiple steps
    • allowing them to perform intelligent queries to published clinical research findings, drug and disease data sources as well Electronic Health Records (EHRs)
    • enable the efficient and effective navigation through the current version of the clinical trial protocol beyond a simple view of the latter
  • offer effective automatic selection of individuals eligible to participate in the clinical trial based on the study parameters and with a clear focus on patient safety and clinical trial efficacy and cost
  • allow for adaptive clinical trial design
