Renal Trials in the Asia Pacific: Where Are We & What Does the Future Hold?

Life Sciences, Clinical Trials, Pharmaceutical, Emerging Market,
  • Wednesday, October 10, 2018

The Asia-Pacific region represents many opportunities for sponsors. The region has seen a significant growth in the number and size of clinical trials in the past decade. However, despite this growth, there remains some misconceptions about running clinical trials in what is widely considered the most dynamic region on Earth.

How can sponsors make the most of this constantly evolving landscape?

In recognition of Kidney Week, world-renowned renal physician-researcher, Professor Vlado Perkovic, who has over twenty years’ experience conducting trials in the Asia-Pacific region, will discuss the current state of clinical trial development and practice in the area; and where the sector may be heading in the future.

Professor Perkovic, who is currently Executive Director of The George Institute, Australia, and sits on the editorial board of several leading journals including the New England Journal of Medicine, will provide a thorough examination of the current status of trials in kidney disease, and future directions. He will also provide insights into the Asia-Pacific region, outlining the region’s opportunities and addressing any common misconceptions, all through the lens of renal trials. It is worth noting that despite his therapy area expertise, this webinar will be relevant to all sponsors interested in the region, regardless of their therapy area focus.
