Breaking Barriers: The Road Ahead for Pharma and Clinical Research

September 18, 2020 | Webinar

What comes first: digital health innovation or regulatory policy? Disruptive innovations are abounding in clinical research with virtual remote clinical trials, big data and the call for standardization of data in translational and clinical research.

Join a panel of clinical research leaders and regulatory experts as they discuss how the combination of health technology and policy have advanced health outcomes over the past six months.  The discussion will explore how to create the right balance to encourage innovation in clinical research, while still offering the necessary guardrails for the industry to confidently establish rapid priorities and adopt emerging innovation.
