“PDSS has rapidly grown, becoming one of the most well attended drug safety conferences in the US, drawing participants from the US, Europe, Latin America and Asia. Our speakers are pharmaceutical/biotechnology industry thought leaders who share a passion for excellence in practice and education, and bring a global perspective to the challenges faced in this dynamic regulatory environment,” said James Buchanan, PharmD, BioSoteria Senior Vice President, Pharmacovigilance and Risk Management. “The breadth and depth of experience among our speakers and attendees makes for a dynamic learning environment and networking opportunity. We invite you to express your interest in providing an oral presentation by submitting an abstract to the PDSS website.”
Sponsored pre-conference tutorials will be held on September 19, 2013 and oral presentations will take place during the main conference on September 20, 2013. Speakers are encouraged to submit an abstract based on their work in the area of pharmacovigilance, risk management, pharmacoepidemiology, medical communications, and/or adverse event intake and reporting. Case studies and examples that demonstrate this year’s theme, “Strategies that Drive Quality in Patient Safety and Operational Efficiency” are of particular interest.
PDSS is held annually in San Francisco, home to the largest cluster of life sciences companies in the United States.
