How to get the most out of a virtual conference...
As the pandemic continues to affect the community’s ability to meet in-person, virtual conferences adapt and develop to create space for companies. Join us while we talk about the different new tools available to improve the virtual conference experience.
PROGRAMME HIGHLIGHT: Regulatory Session
As with previous PSI conferences the conference will end on Wednesday with a session organised by the Regulatory SIG. This is always one not to be missed.

Changes in drug regulation in the UK following BREXIT
The United Kingdom's exit from the European Union has brought challenges to the regulation of medicines in the UK. With those challenges, however, also come opportunities. In this talk, we aim to give an overview of the regulatory pathways available in the UK and how the statistical community can play its part. There will also be some political geography -- you have been warned!

Innovation in Clinical Trials Supporting Evidence Generation Strategies
Within the European Federation of Pharmaceutical Industries and Associations (EFPIA) a Complex Clinical Trials working group have recently developed a white paper and landscape review on complex clinical trials. Key challenges and recommendations relating to complex clinical trials learned from recent case studies will be shared including a summary of the ongoing and planned activities to develop solutions addressing key challenges and identify emerging best practices aligned with key stakeholders (Industry, regulators, HTA agencies, ethic committees, and patient advocacy groups).

Regulatory considerations of the CTFG for the initiation and conduct of complex clinical trials
The Clinical Trials Facilitation and Coordination Group (CTFG) was established by Heads of Medicines Agencies in 2004 as a working group to implement the EU clinical trials directive 2001/20 EC across the Member States. The role and responsibilities of the CTFG as regulatory network for clinical trials in Europe will be presented. Recent initiatives and interactions with stakeholders to support the initiation and conduct of complex/innovative clinical trials will be emphasized.

A message from the Conference Chair...

Two months to go and the excitement is rising now that the conference programme has been released. It may be online but it is still a ‘proper’ PSI conference. In fact, we have extended the third day to include two sessions in the afternoon as being online, there is no time needed to travel home. Time to register!
