CardioVascular Clinical Trialists Asia Forum (CVCT) 2014 Singapore

  • Conference Call
  • You are kindly invited to par­tic­i­pate in the 2014 Car­dio­Vas­cu­lar Clin­i­cal Tri­al­ists Asia Forum (CVCT) which will be held on July 4 – 6, 2014 in Sin­ga­pore at the Fuller­ton Hotel Sin­ga­pore. This event is endorsed by the Sin­ga­pore Car­diac Soci­ety and the Asian Pacific Soci­ety of Car­di­ol­ogy.

    This inti­mate gath­er­ing of key opin­ion lead­ers assem­bled in the dynamic set­ting of Sin­ga­pore cre­ates the right envi­ron­ment for unpar­al­leled lev­els of sci­en­tific exchange and mutual learn­ing. Dur­ing the sci­en­tific ses­sions, work­shops and net­work­ing events, par­tic­i­pants will brain­storm on cur­rent issues in car­dio­vas­cu­lar drug, device and bio­marker devel­op­ment; and trial design, con­duct, ethics, inter­pre­ta­tion, approv­abil­ity and imple­men­ta­tion in Asia.

    The CVCT Asia Forum fol­lows the suc­cess­ful exam­ple of the main CVCT meet­ings in Paris which annu­ally enjoy large rep­re­sen­ta­tion from Europe and the US.
