The regulatory landscape for safety monitoring is evolving, particularly in emerging regulation/guidance from the US FDA and EMA. This maturing regulatory landscape calls for a systematic and proactive process, multi-disciplinary collaboration, quantitative framework/methods/tools, built on a solid safety data architecture. This session will feature presentations on global safety monitoring regulations and the relevant clinical and statistical considerations. The FDA IND safety reporting final rule will be reviewed (FDA speaker invited). The design consideration to align with the recent guidance of the FDA IND safety reporting final rule will be shared by an industry representative.

Learning Objectives
