Speakers -------- N/A CHI’s and the BioPharma Strategy Series’ Second Annual Drug Development Latin America: Effectively Planning and Implementing Clinical Research and Trials will be held March 10-11, 2010 at the Crowne Plaza Philadelphia City Center in Philadelphia, PA. This year this gathering will be co-located with the Summit for Clinical Ops Executives ( SCOPE ), a four-day cluster of events taking place March 8-11, 2010. CHI’s Drug Development Latin America will open with an inclusive short course on ‘Country and Site Feasibility and Selection for Global Clinical Trials’ and will be preceded immediately by its sister conference, the Third Annual Patient Recruitment in Clinical Trials conference. The globalization of R&D into emerging regions continues. Growing R&D spending in Asia, Latin America and CIS countries has been driven by many factors including the attractiveness of commercial markets there, more favorable economics including lower relative costs for greater speed, access to highly skilled professional labor and a large pool of patients, particularly treatment-naïve ones. Pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies are seeing rapid growth in the volume of their clinical research, development, and clinical trials activity in Latin America. At the same time, this region presents unique challenges that must be anticipated and managed. This conference is intended to cover the key issues, opportunities, and challenges of clinical research, development, and clinical trials in Latin America.
