Conducting Clinical Trials: Emerging Technologies and Treatments Program is a Program

Full program description

Program Overview:

This 6-course program explores the regulatory, scientific and logistical considerations in clinical trials involving emerging technologies, cutting edge devices, immunotherapies, gene therapies, and stem cell therapies.

Rapid advances in science over the past decade have provided new technologies to innovate, manufacture and assess novel medical products, and to the discovery of life changing cures.Regulators have a key role in providing guidance to industry to ensure safe and effective use of these new scientific advances. In this program, scientific achievements will be highlighted along with their real-world impact. Consideration will be given to regulatory and logistical operations, and successes and consequences of failure.

Program Outcome:

At the end of this program, Conducting Clinical Trials in the Era of Emerging Technologies and Treatments, participants will understand basic terminologies associated with gene therapies, stem cell therapies, and immunotherapies, and the intricate process of harvesting, manufacturing and administrating cells for these therapies.Additionally, participants will gain knowledge of unique technologies including a fetal micropacemaker and the concept of decentralized clinical trials.
