Conference: Clinical Trials in Latin America Sep 9 - 10, 2010 Lima, Peru

**Disclosure: This is a pharma-oriented event, but shows how active and complex is the field in Latin America**

Clinical Trials in Latin America
Sep 9 - 10, 2010
Lima, Peru

This conference brings together key stakeholders involved with clinical trials in Latin America. Latin America is an increasingly desirable location for running clinical trials, and it is important for those involved to collaborate with colleagues and industry counterparts regarding the challenges of developing, executing and completing clinical trials in Latin America.

This is a unique opportunity for pharmaceutical executives in Latin America to hear from key regulatory officials, pharmaceutical leaders, CROs and sites on how all stakeholders in the clinical process can ultimately achieve desired results.

Bourses de formation en Recherche et Développement clinique du TDR

Le Programme spécial de recherche et de formation concernant les maladies tropicales (TDR) invite les chercheurs de pays en voie de développement à présenter leur candidature à des bourses de formation de 12 mois en recherche et développement clinique. Les candidats sélectionnés seront placés dans des institutions en charge du développement de médicaments comme les sociétés pharmaceutiques et les partenariats de développement de produits impliqués dans ce programme de formation. Le but est de développer des capacités afin de promouvoir la recherche et le développement clinique de qualité dans les pays d’endémie en formant des professionnels qualifiés qui seront à même de renforcer les capacités de développement dans les pays d'endémie d' outils de diagnostique, de médicaments et de vaccins contre les maladies infectieuses qui touchent de façon disproportionnée les populations les plus pauvres et marginalisées.

Le programme formera des chercheurs in situ, en collaboration avec des partenaires appropriés afin de développer des compétences spécialisées qui ne sont pas toujours enseignées dans les centres universitaires, et notamment la gestion de projets de recherche et développement, la réglementation et les bonnes pratiques dans les essais cliniques. A la fin de leur stage, ces chercheurs sont censés rentrer dans leurs établissements d’origine et assumer des responsabilités, devenant ainsi des ressources précieuses dans l’effort mondial de recherche et développement contre les maladies infectieuses.

Call for applications - TDR R&D career development fellowships

TDR Clinical R&D career development fellowships provide a generous monthly stipend, travel, health insurance, computer, alumni membership and professional meeting participation.

The Special Programme for Research and Training in Tropical Diseases (TDR) invites researchers from Disease Endemic Countries (DEC) to apply for a 12-month Career Development Fellowship on Clinical Research & Development (Clinical R&D). Successful candidates will be seconded to leading drug development institutions such as pharmaceutical companies and product development partnerships (PDPs) that are also taking part in this fellowship programme. The goal is to develop human resources to promote high quality clinical R&D in DEC It is expected that qualified professionals will be able to enhance DEC product‑development capacity on diagnostics, drugs and vaccines for infectious diseases that disproportionately affect poor and marginalized populations.

The fellowship will train individuals in situ with relevant partners in order to develop specialized skills not readily taught in academic centres, including inter alia R&D project management, regulatory requirements and good practices. Upon completing their fellowships, the individuals are expected to return to their home institutes and assume a leading role in the global effort on R&D for infectious diseases.
