Bootstrapping Your Regulatory Intelligence: Start and Grow a Successful RI Program From Scratch

RAC Credits
Virtual Programs Virtual Programs
Thursday, 17 September 2020 (9:00 AM) - Friday, 18 September 2020 (2:00 PM) Eastern Time (US & Canada)

The pace of innovation and change in medicinal product development is increasing as are changes in regulatory frameworks and standards. Maintaining awareness of these regulatory changes and providing strategic input to product development teams are critical deliverables of modern regulatory intelligence (RI) programs, yet little information is available on how to set up the processes and tools for a new RI program.

Whether you are a dedicated RI program manager or perform RI activities as part of another role, this hands-on workshop will provide students with the opportunity to leverage the tools and practice the techniques needed to start an RI program from scratch using simple processes and freely available tools and databases, such as Google search, Feedly, Excel, Outlook, ClinicalTrials.gov, Drugs@FDA and others.
