How New Medications are Developed: Inside Pharmaceutical Clinical Trials LIMITED
Limited Capacity seats available

For every medication approved by the FDA, hundreds of thousands of others have failed. This workshop will give you a glimpse into how these drugs are tested, mostly in people through clinical trials. For the last 20 years, I've helped pharmaceutical companies get their drugs to market faster (or fail faster) by marketing clinical trials to physicians and patients and encouraging them to participate. Working with pharmaceutical companies across the world and across different diseases, I've helped people understand the benefits and risks of participating in a clinical trial. Why would anyone want to be a 'guinea pig'? What will I get if I participate? How are patients protected in a clinical trial? Don't pharma companies just want to make a lot of money off of patients? Get a behind-the-scenes look into the fascinating world of the medications we use in our daily lives.
