Topic Title: Clinical Development ‘R’ us

Clinical development has been the significant challenge for drug developers due to a low likelihood of success (e.g., 9.6% from Phase I for all developmental candidates*). Regulatory sciences and strategies become increasingly critical pillars in building clinical development plan for any successful new drug development.

In this presentation, roles of regulatory sciences and strategies in the clinical development will be elaborated.
