Sponsored by Businesswire

DIA, the premier professional global community for healthcare product development, announced its Global Annual Meeting will take place virtually from June 14-18, bringing the life sciences industry together to collaborate, network and advance efforts on its most pressing issues.

For more than 50 years, DIA has provided the world’s largest, neutral stage for regulators and researchers to address healthcare challenges. Recently, thousands of global professionals convened for its ongoing COVID-19 webinar series for insight into topics like conducting clinical trials during the pandemic and data integrity considerations for impacted trials. Appetite for the series underscores the Global Annual Meeting’s importance as a connection point for continued education and advancement.

“The life sciences industry faces the unprecedented challenge that is rapidly bringing a COVID-19 treatment or vaccine to market, while pushing forward other therapies,” said Barbara Lopez Kunz, Global Chief Executive, DIA. “In a time when we are more isolated than ever before, we must break down siloes and collaborate to develop solutions. The virtual Global Annual Meeting provides professionals across the drug development continuum an opportunity to come together, learn and innovate.”

The Global Annual Meeting features 140+ sessions across 13 tracks, addressing patient engagement, regulatory science, translational science, and value and access. Registrants will also have access to DIA Now, the organization’s comprehensive educational resource that helps professionals stay ahead of trends, expand their knowledge base and gain insights.
