Trials and Tribulations
Shaping a Bright New Future for Pharmaceutical Medicine
FPM Annual Symposium 2021 will bring together global leaders and innovators from pharmaceutical medicine and beyond for a landmark two-day virtual conference.
During 2021 we have all been on an extraordinary learning curve. Following a period of adaptation, agility and growth, pharmaceutical medicine is in the public spotlight now more than ever before. Terms like ‘R rates’, ‘epidemiology’ and ‘clinical trials’, have entered the public lexicon. The UK Chief Medical and Scientific Officers are now bona fide celebrities. The way we have communicated has had to develop to respond to immediate public concerns and we have learnt the utmost importance of considered, open and honest dialogue.
AI and digital health technologies are augmenting and driving pharmaceutical innovations and the ways in which we conduct clinical trials. We have discovered the power and challenges of international and cross-sector scientific collaboration, and the benefits of fast and flexible regulatory strategies to bring medicines at pace and scale to patients.
This year’s themes are:
- AI and digital health,
- clinical trials adaptations and innovations,
- health policy,
- and communication with patients and the public.
Join us in November and be part of our bright new future.
