DIA TIRS Journal to Launch Monthly Podcasts

WASHINGTON — Nov 26, 2013

Podcasts Will Be Featured On iTunes And Journal's Homepage

DIA today announced that Therapeutic Innovation & Regulatory Science (TIRS), its official peer-reviewed journal, will begin posting monthly podcasts. The podcasts will utilize a published article as the foundation and topic for discussion and will feature high-level thought leaders from industry, regulatory and academia. The first podcast is currently available and is posted on the journal’s homepage at http://dij.sagepub.com/.  All subsequent discussions will be available on both the journal’s homepage and iTunes. This month’s feature is based on the special section Maternal and Child Health Therapeutics in the September 2013 issue of TIRS.  In it, Editor-in-Chief Dr. Stephen Spielberg and Dr. Lode DeWulf discuss the urgent need for better data to guide clinical decision making during pregnancy.

We continue to seek new ways to ensure that TIRS grows and remains the foremost trusted resource for understanding and advancing the drug development industry and regulatory affairs,” said TIRS Editor-in-Chief, Dr. Stephen Spielberg. “This is in keeping with DIA’s mission to foster innovation across all pillars of industry. It is our intent to use technological advancements to move the needle of medical advancements. By finding new ways of disseminating essential information we will drive conversations that enable people worldwide to share knowledge and work together as never before.”

Issues of the new journal are available online at dij.sagepub.com/content/current. For more information about DIA, Dr. Spielberg and TIRS, visit www.diahome.org.
