A note from challenge judge and Lilly VP of Oncology, Newt Crenshaw

In a few weeks, I'll be reviewing your Clinical Trial Visualization Redesign challenge submissions along with an all-star, patient-focused judging panel.  I'm looking forward to seeing your innovative design ideas that will help transform how we communicate clinical trials to patients in a visually appealing and user-friendly way. 

Many people don't realize that only about 3% of cancer patients participate in clinical trials.   It is through clinical trials that we have made the progress we have seen over the years in curing cancer.  We need both breakthrough and stepwise innovation in cancer therapies.   This will happen as patients better understand…

Note from a patient advocacy leader

As someone who has been a patient advocate and a cancer patient for several years, I know all too well the pitfalls of biomedical research and clinical trials that read like ancient Greek. I’m also a journalist with an engineering background, and there have been countless times when I’ve struggled to make sense of the clinical trial reports I read. That’s why the Clinical Trial Visualization Redesign is so important.

Using data visualization of clinical trial information will make a positive, and even seismic, shift in patients' ability to understand and participate in research; it’ll give patients solid decision tools…

10 things you didn't know about clinical trials — part one

What the judges are looking for

As you start drafting your redesign, bear in mind the competition judging criteria. Each judge weighs your submission against four benchmarks, so be sure to address each of them (either in your design itself or in your text description). Put yourself in the judges shoes — after evaluating your redesign against the benchmarks below, does it make the case for a winning submission?

Judging criteria for the winning submissions

  • Visual presentation. Is your design visually appealing? Is the hierarchy and density of information user-friendly and digestible?  

  • Patient usefulness. Does your design highlight information that’s valuable to patients? Does it…
