Exploring the 2017 Agenda Highlights

With prevailing uncertainty as to the impact of changes to regulations and administration, this year’s event offered attendees the opportunity to voice their concerns for the upcoming challenges.

Day 1 kicked off with a 20 minute spotlight presentation by the Global Contracts and Outsourcing Lead from Astellas, exploring the impact the 21st Century Cures Act will have on the biopharma industry. The ‘One-in-Two-Out’ rule will be addressed in this session.

The afternoon of day 2 included an interactive session given by Theodore Danoff (Senior VP Clinical and Medical Affairs & Chief Medical Officer at Clarus Therapeutics). This session explored a novel idea for a future CRO selection tool. Theodore addressed the current challenges that are associated with vendor selection and asked the audience how they currently go about this.

He then explored the idea of a CRO selection tool available online, similar to other online sites offering helpful feedback such as YELP.

Theodore floated this idea around to see what the audience thinks of it. The session concluded with specific points to take away and how you can implement these ideas into your current process. This was an excellent opportunity to explore a new, innovative idea and discuss its potential with fellow industry professionals.
