COVID-19 Response: New Opportunities & Implications for the Future of Drug Development in Emerging Economies
The COVID-19 epidemic has led to new sources of research funding being channeled towards emerging economies. This funding from philanthropists and global governance bodies reflects the fact that emerging economies may not see the peak of the infections for months to come and need support in effectively dealing with the consequences of the pandemic. Understanding the strategic priorities of new funding to properly assess future opportunities for growth is key.
Cytel and Certara have organized a virtual panel discussion, bringing together highly acclaimed key opinion leaders and industry experts.
- Understand the strategic priorities of philanthropic enterprise within global health as it relates to COVID-19;
- Receive an overview of expedited clinical development in emerging economies;
- Harness existing pharmaceutical supply chains in emerging economies;
- Obtain insight into vaccine and drug distribution in emerging economies.
