Professionals in pharma, biotech, CROs and academia will benefit from this book by learning how to ‘work’ with various global regulatory agencies to understand their timelines, guidelines and specific regulatory requirements in place for new drug development. Global Regulatory Systems is a book from which companies will learn upfront what agencies require in order to give them insight to develop drugs based on specific agency’s regulatory guidelines."

"Regulatory professionals are routinely asked a variant of the "can we do this?" question. The task of answering this is nearly impossible without an understanding of global regulatory guidance and practices. Therefore, it is essential that every regulatory professional is armed with a framework for reference. Global Regulatory Systems: A Strategic Primer for Biopharmaceutical Product Development and Registration provides a broad, yet concise and detailed, summary of the major regulatory topics that invariably shape drug development programs, both operationally and strategically."

—Gregory Dombal
Managing Director, Halloran Consulting Group

"The Global Regulatory Systems book explores the complex global regulatory environment in the clinical trials industry in a systematic and structured manner.

The book is a compilation of the author’s passion for the subject, working knowledge, extensive experience and expertise for professionals and students to gain a better appreciation of the similarities and differences in regulations between various countries."
