Bringing products to patients earlier when trials are globally acceptable for new medical product approval. This session’s presentations will provide insight into some of the international regulations such as playing a role in achieving transparency of the landscape of clinical research, efficiency by harmonization and collaboration of regulators review and approval of new drugs/devices, and considerations for options for harmonization of data privacy rules and consequences related to data sharing across borders
