About iiBIG's 5th Annual Global Clinical Outsourcing Summit

The annual summit, December 6-7, 2011, will take place at the Sheraton Meadowlands in East Rutherford, NJ -- in the heart of America's "Pharma Corridor." This executive-level event will focus on the unique issues involved in outsourcing clinical research & life sciences manufacturing to non-US locales; and on the regulatory, logistical and technology-related issues that are empowering global partnerships. As Pharma sponsors reduce domestic workforces, dependence on outsourced relationships throughout the life sciences food-chain will increase. Outsourcing and strategic partnerships have never been more imperative to drive down costs and reduce drug delivery time.
