DIA India’s 8th Annual Conference

24th – 26th Oct. 2013
NIMHANS Convention Centre, Bangalore

8th Annual Conference The New Clinical Research Environment in India: Implications and Opportunities

The pharmaceutical industry is at an inflexion with momentous changes staring it in the face. In India too, issues with investment, research, and intellectual property indicate a new environment that has both implications and opportunity. The clinical research environment, in particular, has seen ground-shifting changes. New regulations have made the pursuit of clinical development in India extremely challenging. At the same time, demand for services in the regulation-free domains of remote data processing and IT-enabled offerings is growing at an unprecedented scale. A section of the Indian pharmaceutical industry is at the threshold of entry into uncharted territories with global development of innovative assets and biosimilars, even as it braces for headwinds from a struggling global economy and more demanding regulatory requirements. Scientific advances at the genetic and molecular level and enhanced public and non-profit funding are enabling new approaches to public health concerns.

This conference will provide a forum for academia, industry, regulators and researchers to come together to discuss the new environment for health care product development in India – the challenges and the opportunities. Participants will hear about how their peers are coping with new regulations and how they are planning to realize the promise of emerging opportunities.
