The benefits of running trials in emerging markets are well known, for instance access to appropriate patients, lower costs and reduced turn-around times. However, working in emerging regions takes special planning and management processes that can be easily overlooked, which can lead to study delays, unnecessary expense or poor quality data. This webinar, presented from the viewpoint of a central laboratory and the lead CRO, will provide you with actionable tips and suggestions to use during your next trial.
