With a growing aging population, an estimated 2.2 billion hospital visits per year, an expansive network of qualified hospitals and research sites, and a skilled talent pool of clinical trial project leaders, China is an appealing location for clinical studies. The Chinese government is also supportive of international partnerships and has introduced an improved regulatory environment for more efficient and accelerated research and new drug approvals.

In this webinar, we will discuss the Chinese clinical trial landscape and how sponsors can address and ease common difficulties in managing a study in China. Attendees will learn:

  • The impact of recent regulatory reforms, including China's Human Genetic Resources Regulation (HGRAC)
  • Best practices for operational oversight and governance
  • Practical tips and solutions for developing an effective communications plan
  • How to address escalations
