Symposium Overview
Rarely has the life science industry been met with so many major changes and uncertainties with such far-reaching consequences to drug development, manufacturing, monitoring and marketing. And rarely has there been a greater need to bring together representatives and advisors from government and the world's leading drugmakers to share strategies for regaining consumer confidence in today's medicines.

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.

Choose from multiple tracks!

On Day 2 of the Symposium, select the tracks that best meet your needs. Each one features a powerful line up of industry experts, thought leaders and policymakers. Choose from three morning tracks: Drug Safety and Risk Management; Advertising, Promotion and Compliance; or Where the FDA and CMS Meet. Choose from two afternoon tracks: Drug and Device Development and Clinical Trials, or Compliance and FDA Enforcement.
