It currently costs just over £500 million ($800 million) to bring a new chemical to market and development timelines continue to fall in the 10-15 year range.  A key reason for high R&D costs is due to logistical failures including failure to recruit patients on time. A way to avoid this is to move clinical trials to emerging markets such as Asia, India and Central and Eastern Europe. However by moving clinical trials to these regions other logistical problems emerge such as regulation, customs, poor infrastructure etc.

This conference will provide an update on logistical issues in traditional markets, such as Western Europe and North America as well as providing a focused update on the experiences of pharma companies that are moving their operations to emerging markets.

Key topics at the 2011 conference will include:

Forecasting and Planning
Challenges of a Globalised Trial Industry
The Element of Risk
Special Cases: Biologicals, Temperature Control and Adaptive Trials
Staffing and Training
Successfully managing pharma-CRO partnerships to expedite logistical operations
