The FDA Regulatory and Compliance Symposium

- a unique three-day, high-level forum in one of the world's most famous academic settings - will help drugmakers prepare for the full impact of the many changes flowing from the FDA and Congress, while clarifying many of the uncertainties. The Symposium will also provide practical solutions to the challenges and risks faced throughout the product life cycle - from the drug pipeline to manufacturing to patient delivery.
