Tatsuya Kondo, MD, PhD

All the regulatory agencies in the world have been trying to work for the
benefit to the patients by establishing new regulations in response to the
needs of their citizens. In this session, we invite speakers who once worked
as a physician in the medical institutions, where they observed what
regulatory agencies do, and then later became a leader of agencies, or a
leader of pharmaceutical industry. Speakers will be asked to discuss “Rational
Medicine” from the patients’ view point. Rational Medicine is something that
patients want, and not only healthcare providers but also people working in
the industry and regulatory agencies would want to deliver it to the patients.
What did they think about when they were healthcare providers? Did it
change when they became a leader of agency or industry? Let us relook at
what Rational Medicine really mean through these discussions.
