The Human Aspect of Clinical Drug Trials

March 13, 2019 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

In collaboration with Durham Technical Community College

Susan Pusek, Director of Education Programs, NC Translational and Clinical Sciences Institute

Experts predict that the global pharmaceutical market will be worth more than $1 trillion by 2022, with the US alone holding more than 45 percent of this global market. As this industry continues to flourish, it is critical that we consider the human aspects of creating, testing, and selling these drugs. This program will examine participation in drug trials—who participates and why, the ethics and history of clinical trials, and the differences between regulation in America and other parts of the world.

 This event is free and open to the public
