Clinical Trials: Getting a clinical trial underway is no simple task. From patient recruitment to study completion, the drug maker or med tech developer must undertake a wide array of complex, and closely monitored operations, complying with regulations all the way. Trials become more global, patient groups more targeted, and investigator sites more widespread. Where to begin and how to set it up?  Closely connected with Clinical Trials are Regulatory Affairs: The final hurdle – getting your drug, therapy or medical device approved and on the market. Talk with experts about the regulatory requirements in Europe and the rest of the world, since they are continually evolving and vary from one country to another. What does it take to navigating through the different regulatory landscapes?
