The paradigm of traditional drug development is shifting as more and more biopharmaceutical organizations look to emerging markets to reduce their clinical study timelines, and hence overall development costs, through more effective patient enrollment. During his presentation scheduled for Thursday, July 28 at 10:30 a.m., Mr. Passov will address the perceptions of emerging markets; consider the benefits of conducting clinical trials in Russia compared to other emerging countries; and explore how best to navigate the new clinical trial regulations in order to optimize clinical trial performance. Mr. Passov will also chair the first day of this year's conference.

The Marcus Evans Clinical Research in Emerging Countries conference, now in its 6th year, will offer a half day workshop on July 27 followed by two days of sessions led by pharmaceutical and biotechnology industry leaders. Marcus Evans Emerging Countries conference series is aimed at equipping industry professionals with necessary knowledge on critical globalization issues such as regulatory and legal compliance, training of personnel, overcoming cultural barriers, and clinical outsourcing opportunities.
