Mike Page, invite to SMi's Orphan Drugs & Rare Diseases

SMi Reports: Mike Page, Executive Director Global Regulatory Affairs Portfolio Products at Alexion Pharmaceuticals invites heads of medical affairs and all who are interested to SMi’s 9th Annual Conference on Orphan Drugs & Rare Diseases.

Mike Page will be co-chairing the conference with Rick Thompson, CEO at Findacure, which will be taking place on 15th and 16th October in London.

This conference will bring together a broad spectrum of experts from across the orphan drug world. The two-day compact agenda will offer a series of presentations, through which you will gain key insights into current trends and innovations in orphan drug development, using real world case studies to illustrate challenges and opportunities.

The rare and ultra rare disease landscape is constantly changing as new diagnostic and therapeutic technologies emerge and partnerships are developed to address patient access and funding issues. At the conference, speakers from patient organisations, pharmaceutical R&D companies, health technology assessment groups, and others will lay out the current landscape and address how the orphan drug space will develop as the century continues.

Delegates will gain many invaluable insights from this event, on major topics such as:
• International perspectives on state-of-the-art rare disease research and development
• Patient perspectives on the challenges of navigating the path to diagnosis and encouraging research interest in rare diseases
• Cutting edge innovations with emerging technologies including stem cell therapy and artificial intelligence
• Appraisal of real-world value for new therapies in the orphan drug arena
• Following the conference there will be a half day workshop where delegates will deep dive into strategies for accelerating patient access to orphan drugs, addressing issues, opportunities and barriers, that are met when developing a product for patients with rare diseases.
