Combination Products Conference

Innovation and New Frontiers


October 24: Short Course: Combination Product Advanced Case Studies
*Lunch not included with Short Course.
October 25-26: Conference

The DIA Combination Products Conference: Innovation and New Frontiers will examine the current regulatory ecosystem for combination product development and approval, including provisions of the 21st Century Cures Act, proposed PDUFA VI commitments, the implementation of new decision-making models at FDA, US regulatory developments, global regulatory changes, and global alignment efforts. In-depth treatment of digital and eHealth issues, labeling for combination products and complex generics, and CGMPs for combination products will be featured.

In an interactive format, relevant stakeholders from FDA and industry will present the challenges and opportunities in combination product development and life cycle management. Participants will take away today’s best answers to these questions: How can the new legal and regulatory tools be used to best advance combination product development and approval? Is the regulatory framework for combination products good enough and how can it be further improved? How can new technologies be leveraged to realize opportunities in development of new therapies to meet patient needs?

Approved by the Regulatory Affairs Professionals Society for 12 RAC credits.
