Why You Should Attend

11th Pediatric Clinical Trials

This marcus evans 11th Pediatric Clinical Trials Conference will take an analytical look at all aspects of pediatric clinical trials from the scientific stages of extrapolating adult data, to regulatory topics on designing Pediatric Investigation Plans (PIPs) and Pediatric Study Plans (PSPs) for EMA and FDA compliance. In addition, we will address the challenges of recruiting patients for these trials while being able to successfully retain them. This conference will bring together leading professionals to discuss key strategies in closing the gap between pediatric ethical challenges to meeting the demands of the global regulatory requirements while continuously improving pediatric care.

The continued FDA and EMA regulations and ethical standards governing pediatric clinical trials continue to be a huge concern in the pharmaceutical industry. High quality and cost effective pediatric clinical trials are difficult to achieve, requiring well qualified and appropriately trained workforce to carry out the highest quality research protocols and adhere to the regulatory infrastructure.
