Drug Safety Conference London 2018

11/06/2018 - 12/06/2018 London

SMi Group are pleased to announce their 5th Drug Safety conference, taking place on the 11th – 12th June 2018 in London, UK.

Conference Overview:

For drugs anywhere, it’s the safety in patients which is a huge issue constantly under surveillance, irrespective of where the drug is in its pipeline.

The Global Pharmaceutical Market currently has a market value of $1057 billion. If a drug is found to be unsafe, causing serious side effects, it can have a huge knock on effect on revenue, causing huge losses to pharmaceutical companies manufacturing the drug.

Therefore, Drug Safety 2018 aims to discuss the latest findings and current thinking on pharmacovigilance. Importantly, it will address the newest regulatory updates and interpretations of them, including the impact of the vital and much awaited Clinical Trial Regulations.

Registration is now live for you to join SMi’s growing community in drug safety. Download the agenda to take a look at some of our confirmed speakers and save up to £400 with our special early-bird rates available. Secure your place online at: http://www.drugsafetyconference.co.uk/phev
