Clinical Trial Data Sharing and Safeguarding the Privacy of Patients


The second Japan Single Day Event took place on 30th June at SAS Institute, Japan Tokyo. The event was a great success, with over 80 attendees from government, industry and academia.

The theme of the day was 'Clinical Trial Data Sharing and Safeguarding the Privacy of Patients'. As clinical trial data sharing is not yet broadly implemented in Japan, the event posed a broad set of perspectives for the attendees. The 11 presenters disseminated their knowledge and expertise resulting in engaging discussions.


The presentations will follow shortly.
