Title: How Can Regulatory Affairs Meet the Needs of Investigational Products, Scale for Future Needs, and Operate Cross-functionally?

Overview: This presentation will discuss the shifts that require Regulatory Affairs intervention in the investigational clinical study process, and how regulatory affairs can manage this process and liaise cross-departmentally efficiently. Additionally, we will discuss how Regulatory can optimize the use of a scaled-down RIM system and how organizations can scale their regulatory systems for the future as they move towards marketing a product.  We’ll dive into the regulation changes surrounding this shift and the impact they will have on current clinical trial processes and outline why a holistic approach to regulatory affairs can streamline and strengthen investigational product submissions.
