Compliance in a Digital World: Preparing for the Challenges of Tomorrow

Undoubtedly, digitalisation, automation and modularisation of drug and device development offer patients great benefit, but can regulators keep up with the changes and ensure patient safety?

The Increasing Importance of Dietary Supplements in a Post-Covid World

The events of 2020 and 2021 have placed personal health front and centre for many people and encouraged more people to take an active interest in health and wellbeing. As part of that, there has been significant growth in the dietary supplements industry. How can companies stand apart from the competition in this burgeoning industry?
