Medical Writing Preclinical Studies EMWA News

Volume 26, Issue 4 - Preclinical Studies



The 45th EMWA Conference in Cascais, Portugal, has recently finished and we are all waiting for the upcoming annual event in Barcelona, Spain, next Spring. In the meantime, the Executive Committee is working hard on improving what EMWA has to offer to its members. In this section, our new PR officer Maria Joao Almeida will tell you more about the recently implemented News Blast, and our web manager Diarmuid De Faoite brought back the webeditorials with many interesting contributions by our members. Finally, I would like to mention that our conference director Slavka Baronikova has been organising the 6th EMWA symposium that will take place on May 3rd, and the 4th Expert Seminar Series (ESS) on May 2nd and 4th, 2018, in Barcelona. The symposium will focus on medical devices in general, recent changes in European legislation, and opportunities for medical writers. The symposium is for regulatory writers and medical communicators alike and will provide the perspectives of different stakeholders, including legislators, notified bodies, medical device companies, patient representatives, and reimbursement professionals. The ESS will be focused on regulatory, orphan drugs and rare disorders, pharmacovigilance, and medical journalism. Don’t miss this unique opportunities!
