BioBriefing: 21st Century Cures Act – US Regulatory Impact

August 21, 2018 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm AEST

The 21st Century Cures Act (Cures Act), signed into US law on December 13, 2016, is designed to help accelerate medical product development and bring new innovations and advances to patients who need them faster and more efficiently. The law focuses on incorporating the perspectives of patients into the development of drugs, biological products, and devices in FDA’s decision-making process. Additionally, the Act seeks to modernize clinical trial designs and clinical outcome assessments, which will speed the development and review of novel medical products.

The seminar will review the current impact of the Act for sponsors and FDA and the status of the programs that have been initiated as a result of the Act.
