Why You Should Attend

12th Pediatric Clinical Trials

With continuous changes in both the global regulatory agencies, FDA and EMA, pharmaceutical companies must develop a more comprehensive global compliance and ethics program to ensure patient safety in pediatric clinical trials. For a successful pediatric clinical trial, drug companies must consider many factors in clinical trial design as well as implementation.

This conference will bring together pediatric clinical trial professionals to discuss key strategies in meeting global requirements, and closing the gap of clinical trial recruitment while improving pediatric patient care.
