15th DIA Japan Annual Meeting 2018

Innovative technologies such as AI, big data/genomics, and cell/gene therapies are poised to transform healthcare product development across the globe – join us to discuss these topics.


How do countries across the globe collaborate effectively in delivering innovative pharmaceutical products, medical devices, and regenerative medical products to patients, in the fastest and most efficient way possible? With healthcare product development becoming increasingly global, the time has come to deepen the discussion on how to leverage the individual strengths of countries, promote better collaboration, and strengthen global partnerships, in order to build the ideal ecosystem for creating medicines, medical devices, and regenerative medical products.

Furthermore, innovative technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI), big data/genomics, and cell/gene therapies are poised to transform healthcare product development across the globe – join us at the DIA Japan Annual Meeting 2018, to discuss these topics and the future of healthcare!

Our two invited keynote speakers will be Professor Guido Rasi, Executive Director of the European Medicines Agency (EMA) and Professor Satoru Miyano of Tokyo University, a leading expert in the fields of genome informatics and AI. On day one of our agenda, our first DIA Japan Annual Meeting innovative DIAmond session will be convened by members of the “Innovation Project” led by The International Coalition of Medicines Regulatory Authorities (ICMRA). Our second DIAmond Session, Innovative Clinical Trials, will be led by top leaders from industry, government, and academia, and share their expert insights into clinical trials of the future in the evolving contexts of innovative technologies and environmental changes. General sessions will address other critical “hot topics,” and the meeting also features our popular PMDA Town Hall Meeting and special chat session.

We look forward to welcoming you at Tokyo Big Sight from November 11-13, 2018 for stimulating discussions around promoting better collaboration to drive global health and innovation in this era of medical and scientific transformation.

We hope to see you there!
