Scientific Lunch Talk

Programme Duration: 23 October 2020 (11:00 AM to 12:00 PM)

Venue: Zoom (Online)

Organiser: SCRI Academy

Last week, SCRI held our inaugural revamped scientific sharing session, on the topics of Covid-19 vaccines, and advanced techniques for health technology assessment. Executive Director, Dr Danny Soon, introduced the current COVID-19 vaccine landscape, compared the key differences of various vaccine types, and summarized the progress of clinical development. The participants actively discussed how SCRI can be involved in the vaccine development eco-system. Senior Epidemiologist, Dr Charles Zheng, introduced the Matching-Adjusted Indirect Comparisons (MAIC) for health technology assessment (HTA). He explained the motivation and rationale of conducting MAIC and share a published example on how MAIC could support justifying its effectiveness in the absence of head-to-head comparisons. Ably moderated by our senior statistician, Dr Mihir Gandhi, it was an excellent session of sharing and we look forward to this regular series. #singapore #covid19vaccines #vaccine #healthtech #SCRI
