Shaghig Palanjian, MBA

We will review the point of view from sponsor, service provider (CRO) and QMS design perspectives, and how it impacts GCP compliance when we work with smaller patient populations, limited number of investigators within disease areas, limited data and data sources etc., as we see shifts in the development paradigm and regulatory framework.

Part 2 will take place on Tuesday at 3:30 pm (Session #295).

Develop strategies for the design, implementation, and auditing consideration of GCP Compliance; Discuss company QMS needs in the changing product development paradigm.
