Conference Overview

The stringent regulations on safety monitoring increased the safety in data collection, analysis and regulatory surveillance. Adding to this the rising demand for drugs, the amplified need for novel therapeutics development via extensive clinical trials and the world population growth made drug manufacturers start paying more attention to Pharmacovigilance as public anxiety about safety increases.

Furthermore, the growth of exponential rare and chronic diseases contributed to an increased need for drug development, therefore this led the industry to have a bigger focus on drug safety.

On this B2B event, participants will have the chance to learn more about this challenging era and the latest developments in Pharmacovigilance and Drug Safety with the main key players in this field.

This event will be focusing on trends on Regulatory challenges, Signal detection, Data management, Risk management, Audit & Inspection and New technology applied to Pharmacovigilance procedures.

We invite you to discuss and debate these challenges in a dialogue amongst top professionals in Pharmacovigilance.
