Following from the success of Arena’s past five conferences, Clinical Trial Supply West Coast 2013 will return on 29-30 May in San Francisco to bring brand new and interesting clinical supply concepts that will help revolutionize the management of the clinical supply chain.
This year, a broad scope of topics will be covered throughout the supply chain specifically researched and selected to reflect the challenges affecting the West Coast market. This essential conference is not to be missed by anyone working within the clinical supply sector!
The two-day conference agenda covers the greatest challenges in clinical trials that often cause costly time delays or trial cancellation. Some of the most crucial topics that will be covered this year will include:
- Uncovering risk-based monitoring in clinical trials
- Collective drug inventories for multiple trials
- New ‘Just-in-time’ approaches
- Ensuring you safe-guard your business in the rising era of multiple vendors
- IVRS (inventory management, simulation forecasting)
The programme has also been designed with networking in mind, featuring interactive break-out and dedicated networking sessions which will enable you to meet and greet your peers.
