Addressing Issues & Strategies in

Global Engage are proud to announce our 3rd Asia Pharma R&D Outsourcing Congress which will be held on November 21-22 in San Diego, CA, USA.

Outsourcing of preclinical development is projected to increase by up to 50% in the next few years. As R&D outsourcing continues to gain momentum, increasing numbers of countries have sought to create an infrastructure that will support discovery through academic innovation and government investment. This has created a scenario where the Asia Pacific region is developing fully outsourced drug discovery programs from lead identification through to lead optimization and beyond. With increasing preclinical investment in Asia it is important to seek outsourcing strategies that will minimize risk and maximize returns - to learn critical factors, tips and what to expect.

The 3rd congress will build upon the success of last year’s APRDOC and examine how the Asia Pacific region has developed as a potential partner for outsourcing drug discovery programs. With a particular focus on preclinical outsourcing, the conference will center on the key issues facing those new to and already outsourcing R&D efforts to Asia. Addressing the need to protect intellectual property, keep up to date with continually developing regional regulation and identify partnerships within chemistry, biology and biologics outsourcing; the congress will seek to improve successes and examine best practice techniques, innovative strategies, and business models in order to minimize expenses and develop pipelines during a time of soaring R&D costs.

Held on the West Coast to enable easy access for US based attendees, as well as attracting representatives from the growing Asian market - the conference will include topics such as:

Asia R&D Outsourcing Strategies
CRO Selection and Management
IP, Regulations and GxP
Scientific Research Outsourcing
