Event overview:

The drug development landscape in Asia Pacific is accelerating more than ever before. Emerging biotech companies now face multiple hurdles in the clinical development process – from learning to prioritize the right target indication, effectively designing robust clinical study program with integration of right biomarkers ultimately seeking compressed development timelines.
With increasing trial complexity and decreasing success rate for oncology assets in the clinical productivity index, it is critical for small sponsors to identify the right target disease indication and consider the appropriate biomarker strategies right from the start of your early clinical development plan.
Join this webinar to learn how JAPAC IQVIA Biotech leverages data and expertise to support your strategic drug development for early oncology assets to ensure your success.
