FDA Sponsor-Investigator Virtual Conference

This virtual symposium is a distinct opportunity for Sponsor-Investigators and key research staff to receive targeted training directly from FDA, NIH, and research industry representatives. It will provide insight into the unique dual-role of sponsor-investigators with in-depth coverage of the applicable FDA regulations, guidelines, and best practices. Attendees will take away tools for designing and managing quality research studies that will produce accurate and complete data submissions. The three (3) half-day schedule allows for less disruption to clinical practice and continuing education credits (CME/CNE/SOCRA CE) apply.
