On 27 September 2019, the XII Foresight Training Course will take place in Toulouse (France) and will foresee the workshop “Innovative medicine and research: ethical, legal and regulatory issues”. The event is organised by Fondazione per la Ricerca Farmacologica Gianni Benzi Onlus and will be held within the 7th European Association on Health Law (EAHL) Conference “Innovation & Healthcare – New challenges for Europe”, supported by the Council of Europe.
Emerging technologies in genetics, pharmacogenetics, genomics, advanced therapies as well as ICT applications represent today the most advanced tools incorporated in the drug discovery and research & development process used for producing the largest part of the innovative medicines.
Thus, regulation and guidance have to be continuously adapted and updated to guarantee clinical benefits, economic and health outcome improvements, as well as the respect of fundamental patient rights.
Legal, ethical and regulatory issues of innovation in medicine and healthcare will be analysed within this workshop.
