Changing times, technology and a surge in activities in the emerging regions have prompted the global clinical research industry to further enhance capabilities by building capacity and developing talent. Outsourcing services to emerging regions continue to grow especially in the realm of risk based monitoring, data management, clinical trial management and site management. On the scientific arena, innovative research activities in countries like Korea, China, and Singapore to name a few have developed biomedical, biotech and clinical research infra structures with the ultimate goal of attracting big pharma to partner with them to co-develop their discoveries. However, capability, capacity, credibility and overall quality remain to be sticking points.

In this session, current trends, issues, challenges and opportunities will be discussed by experts who work in these emerging regions. Their hope is that by sharing experiences and information the global pharma and biotech industry would have better understanding of the huge opportunities and untapped potential these emerging regions can provide. Join the Good Clinical Practices & Quality Assurance Community for a follow up Round Table discussion on Tuesday, June 25, 3:15-4:15PM in the DIA Community Zone 2, Sails Pavilion.

Learning Objectives

Discuss the current environment of clinical research in emerging regions; Identify strategic advantages in conducting clinical trials in emerging regions; Identify solutions to challenges in conducting clinical research activities and trial management in these emerging regions.
