Interactions with Agencies During Drug Development

Welcome to NDA’s free Lunch seminar on Tuesday 30th April 12:00- 14:00 on Interactions with Agencies During Drug Development

There are many opportunities for bringing your message across to regulators, by interacting with the right EU Agencies at the right time, depending on the type of product, applicant, procedure and stage of development.
