Outsourcing in Clinical Trials West Coast 2021 - A Virtual Conference




Log in to the #OCTWestCoast Virtual Event HERE

Arena International is thrilled to announce return of the leading clinical outsourcing and operations conference on the West Coast! The 14th OCT West Coast edition will be hosted on 24th & 25th February 2021 in a virtual format.

Last year's virtual event was attended by 800+ clinical trial stakeholders. Following its success, we are pleased to offer a brand new 2021 virtual event platform, designed by organisers, specifically for sponsors and delegates.

The 2021 programme has four dedicated streams:

  • Clinical Operations & Outsourcing
  • Technology & Innovation
  • Patient Engagement
  • Medical Device Trials

Attendees on Day 1 will hear talks from Ravi Kiron, Head of EMD Serono, who will discuss how to gain investment during a crisis, as well as a technology keynote from Daniel Ramirez at LEO Pharma on the virtualisation of trials. Donald J Kellerman from Zosano Pharma will discuss how Covid-19 will affect the way we outsource and conduct clinical trials in the future.

There will also be panel discussions devoted to trends for patient engagement, the latest outsourcing strategies and how to create a clinical trial landscape in which smaller companies have greater access to tech and innovation.

Day two addresses how to effectively run medical device trials at a local and global level- especially given Covid-19’s disruption to the market this year for small and mid-sized trial sponsors, with key notes and sessions on relevant regulations, digital technology, innovation and Covid-19 responses- ideal for West Coast medical device and life sciences professionals.
