Regulatory FAQs for implementing a cGMP system from clinical trials to commercialization

Product development from molecule identification to regulatory approval can take on average 7 years. During this drug development cycle, a typical biotech company will have outsourced all if not a majority of their activities to Contract Service Providers like CROs or CDMOs. Given this complexity, and the global nature of the activities contracted, who is ultimately responsible for regulatory compliance?

In this on-demand webinar we will discuss how a phase-appropriate cGMP system can be implemented with increased levels of compliance as the molecule progresses through clinical trials to commercialization.
