Regulatory Innovation in the Life Sciences

November 7, 2023 @ 9:30 am - 4:00 pm


Leicester Business Festival 2023

Before any new medical product can be made available to patients, it needs to demonstrate that it complies with the requirements set out by the relevant regulatory bodies in the territories where the product will be made available. The purpose of these requirements is to ensure, as far as is possible, that a product is safe to use and that it performs in the manner the manufacturer says it does.

Meeting the requirements of the regulators is a significant undertaking and as a result dictates much of the downstream development process for healthcare technologies. The novel nature of research means that there will not always be a clearly defined regulatory pathway for novel technologies. By considering potential pathways and engaging with regulators early you can identify how your technology might fit with existing pathways and if it doesn’t fit, it will enable you to work with the regulators to develop an appropriate pathway. Furthermore, the external landscape Brexit and forthcoming changes in regulation, also have additive implications developing new products.

So how do you go about getting the right advice and from who? We’ve got a diverse array of regulatory experts coming along to share their knowledge and be questioned by the audience with burning issues to solve.
