Dell Medical School welcomes Joe V. Selby, M.D., MPH, in presenting "Clinical Research for a Patient-Centered Century: A Novel Research Institute Meets a Novel Medical School." Selby recognizes that inefficiency and wasted resources are apparent in clinical research, as they are in clinical care.

During his talk, Selby will outline principles for a more efficient approach to research, including:

  • Asking research questions that have genuine relevance and that haven’t already been answered
  • Involving end-users to help get to better questions and to help ensure that the evidence produced better meets the needs of decision-makers
  • Conducting the research in broader more generalizable populations and settings
  • Hypothesizing and testing for treatment heterogeneity
  • Being more transparent with research findings and data by adopting principles of open science.

Selby will introduce the audience to the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI), another new institution that aims to do medical research, clinical care and medical education differently and better.
