Join Pharma, Biotech Industry Leaders at iiBIG's Global Clinical Outsourcing Summit

PORT WASHINGTON, NY--(Marketwire - Sep 13, 2011) - iiBIG presents the Global Clinical Outsourcing Summit, scheduled for December 6-7, 2011 at Sheraton Meadowlands in East Rutherford, NJ.

This executive-level event will focus on the unique issues involved in outsourcing clinical research and life sciences manufacturing to non-US locales and on the regulatory, logistical and technology-related issues that are empowering global partnerships. What can be done by sponsors, CROs and clinical research and manufacturing sites to drive innovation with continually limited resources and budgets? As pharmaceutical 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.

AMAG Pharmaceuticals, Inc.; Anhvita BioPharma Consulting, Inc.; Aptalis Pharma; Arno Therapeutics; Beardsworth Consulting; Bristol-Myers Squibb; Cipher Pharmaceuticals Inc.; ClearTrial; Eagle Genomics Ltd.; Eli Lilly and Company; Endo Pharmaceuticals; Grifols, Inc.; Grünenthal; ICON Late Phase & Outcomes Research; ImClone Systems; Incyte; Inovio Pharmaceuticals, Inc.; The JB Ashtin Group; Humber College School of Health Sciences; McWatters Clinical Research Consulting Inc.;; myClin; Novartis U.S.; Octapharma Plasma, Inc.; Pfizer; Radiant Sage LLC; RxTrials; SAFE-BioPharma Association; Shire Development Inc.; and ViroPharma
