Plan to Accelerate Your Time to Drug Submissions (On-Demand)

This is an On-demand recording from May 2021 

Innumerable factors can come into play, but there are common themes driving how quickly you can get from your last database lock (DBL) to submission of your marketing application. Speaking from first-hand experience across >50 marketing submissions, we will demonstrate how, through thorough planning, you can improve and shorten your speed to submission. We will focus on identifying, and planning for, the critical path for your submission. Using case studies to highlight specific risks and strategies to overcome these challenges, we'll discuss each stage of the submission, variations such as size of the development program, type of submission, and dealing with governance bodies. The goal of the session is to help you identify how to make this activity as rapid as possible for your own team and, hopefully, to arm you with examples and strategies to make your next submission achievable in as little as three months from final database lock.
