We are delighted to inform you that this year Malcolm Carlisle Lecture will be delivered by Sir Kent Woods, former Chairman of EMA and Chief Executive of MHRA. Taking a wider perspective than simply medical devices and medicines, Sir Kent’s lecture will explore the forces driving “the regulatory state” towards greater complexity over the past couple of decades, and the need to maintain clarity of purpose, accountability and expertise:
