Focused clinical trials meeting platform in Taipei, bringing together industry stakeholders, regulators and academics.

The number of trials conducted in Taiwan has reached 2671, ranking in 3rd in Asia, after China and Korea. The market was valued at $114.9 million in 2010 and expected to continue growing to $209.7 million in 2015 at a CAGR of 13%. However, challenges on how to further carve out Taiwan in the competitive regional trials scene still remain, while more discussion on how the region could create extensive collaboration to continue contributing to the globalisation of trials is also needed.

On signing a memorandum of understanding with local Chang Gung Memorial Hospital on 5 October 2012, pharma giant GlaxoSmithKline commented that the collaboration on the clinical R&D center will focus on diseases which oftentimes break outs in Asia and contribute to more consistent trials on Asian patients with products that have been well-tested on humans of other ethnicities.

Taiwan Trials – 26-27 February 2013 - is the ONLY focused clinical trial conference in Taiwan, bringing together pharma, biotechs, CROs, regulators and hospitals as well as technology and solution providers from Taiwan and the rest of the world.
