Drug Safety 2018

11 June 2018 - 12 June 2018

SMi Group are delighted to announce their 5th Drug Safety conference, taking place on the 11th – 12th June 2018 in London, UK. For drugs anywhere, it's the safety in patients which is a huge issue, constantly under surveillance, irrespective of where the drug is in its pipeline. The Global Pharmaceutical Market currently has a market value of $1057 billion. If a drug is found to be unsafe, causing serious side effects, it can have a huge knock on effect on revenue, causing huge losses to pharmaceutical companies manufacturing the drug. Drug Safety 2018 aims to discuss the latest findings and current thinking on pharmacovigilance. Importantly, it will address the newest regulatory updates and interpretations of them, including the impact of the vital and much awaited Clinical Trial Regulations.

Biobanking 2018

13 June 2018 - 14 June 2018

The 8th annual Biobanking conference returns to London on the 13th and 14th June 2018. Biobanks have been an important resource in medical research since the late 1990s, supporting many types of contemporary research, such as genomics, personalised and stratified medicine. Before the advent of biobanks, researchers struggled to acquire sufficient data samples. Today, biobanking is a rapidly growing market, with leading biobanks now facing questions in medical and research ethics, as well as adopting the new GDPR data protection act. This year’s Biobanking conference will have a focus on important changes in regulation, taking into account the recent introduction of GDPR, as well as defining some of the most successful applications of biosamples in the market and giving updates on the latest technological developments in the field. Highlights of the event include: advantages of using cloud-based storage software for biosample management, benefits of sample-linkage, defining the scope of digital phenotyping and low-pass sequencing, applications of GWAS and much more. Join us in June to take part in front-line discussions through a series of interactive presentations, panel discussions and case studies addressing the critical issues surrounding Biobanking.
