Sebastian PayneIn the face of exponential technology and regulatory change, will life science regulatory survive or thrive?
The life sciences industry operates in an increasingly complex regulatory landscape. Regulators and Industry both face challenges in responding to developing trends and fostering innovation in the face of rapid change while keeping patient safety at the core of their purpose. We will explore some of those challenges and look at how by embracing them effectively organisations can not only drive progress, but thrive in the process.
