Regulatory Science Forum


DIA’s mission – to work across the healthcare continuum to ensure patients receive the therapies they need – is more essential than ever during times like these. DIA acknowledges the time and effort that has gone into planning and preparing for the Forum, and trusts that everyone will understand the need to respond to current, evolving health concerns in a responsible manner. These precautions are being taken to ensure the health and safety of our entire, global DIA family.

DIA is committed to exploring all possible avenues to provide a productive setting and a fulfilling meeting experience. We appreciate your patience as we work through technical requirements and any potential challenges.

The Regulatory Science Forum is a platform for sharing knowledge derived from regulatory science research and analyses conducted at the academic, industry and regulatory levels, promoting open dialogue between all stakeholders. The Forum will discuss where more research is needed, as well as the best ways to promote the widespread implementation of findings, recommendations, and other results.

Regulatory Science informs and investigated issues and challenges related to regulatory approvals, assessment and evaluation. It can help your company to better understand the issues you are facing and find more effective solutions to getting your medicines to patients faster.
