The Clinical Data Interchange Standards Consortium (CDISC) is pleased to announce the participation of high-level representatives from the Japan PMDA, US FDA, industry and academia at the 2016 CDISC Japan Interchange. Presentations and discussions will address how CDISC standards help format data from clinical trials so that it can be shared and compared, ensuring “Smarter Research to Unlock Cures” to achieve faster breakthroughs for treating diseases. The CDISC Japan Interchange conference days are 02 - 03 June 2016 at the University of Tokyo in Tokyo, Japan.
“The 2016 CDISC Japan Interchange will bring together major players in the field of medical research, including representatives from academic research organizations, pharmaceutical companies, and global regulatory agencies, to discuss how the use of CDISC standards enables ‘Smarter Research to Unlock Cures,’” said Dr. Rebecca Kush, CDISC CEO. “High-level discussions will touch on critically important subject matter, such as the need to implement standards at the beginning of the research process, and the latest regulatory requirements for using CDISC standards that go into effect this year.”
Dr. Makoto Suematsu, President of the Japan Agency for Medical Research and Development (AMED) will deliver the keynote address. He has nearly 30 years’ experience in medical research and academia. Prior to his role with AMED, Dr. Suematsu held the position of Dean of the Keio University School of Medicine. His presentation, “The AMED Mission: The Impact of Sharing Medical Data,” will take place 02 June 2016.
