SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- ClinStar, LLC, an established CRO providing clinical research services in Russia and Eastern Europe to the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industry, announced today that Manager of Clinical Operations Alexander Kutermin will speak at VIBpharma's Outsourcing in Clinical Trials New England conference, September 28-29, at The Boston Park Plaza Hotel & Towers in Boston, MA.
The paradigm of traditional drug development is shifting as more and more pharmaceutical and biotech organizations look to emerging markets to reduce their clinical study timelines, and hence overall development costs, through more effective patient enrollment. During the presentation scheduled for Wednesday, September 28 at 3:00 p.m., Mr. Kutermin will explore perceptions of emerging markets, evaluate Russia's clinical trial climate in comparison to other emerging countries and learn how to navigate Russia's regulations in order to ensure study success. The presentation will feature a real-life case study evaluating Russia's performance compared to two other regions in a global phase II clinical trial.
VIBpharma's Outsourcing in Clinical Trials New England conference prides itself in offering an expertly designed intelligence and networking platform to discuss pressing industry issues and provide practical solutions to the greatest challenges in clinical outsourcing.
