A toast to inclusivity: Blending diversity into clinical trials

Wednesday, October 18, 2023

DLA Piper invites you to attend a special event at the Commonwealth restaurant in Kendall Square, where fellow life sciences leaders will convene for timely panel discussions on clinical trial diversity.

The first panel will focus on the policy drivers of clinical trial diversity; the second panel will feature in-house innovators who are grappling with trial diversity in the trenches, including information about the tools that are being deployed to meet legal requirements and still support innovation.

Attendees are invited to stay after each panel for networking, food, beverages, and plenty of engaging conversation.

We look forward to seeing you there.
