The Inaugural CureSearch Pediatric Early Development Symposium (PEDS): Successful Planning in the New Era of iPSPs and PIPs

About the Symposium

This practical workshop will focus on initial Pediatric Study Plan (iPSP) and Paediatric Investigation Plan (PIP) development and implementation in today's rapidly changing pediatric cancer landscape.

In this unique forum, attendees from academia, industry, and regulatory agencies will discuss real-life examples and real-world lessons to meet new FDARA guidelines and support early pediatric drug development.

Recognizing the importance of event networking opportunities, our virtual platform will also provide opportunities for one on one and group networking in an engaging online environment. Participants will return to their company or institution with tactical learnings, new relationships, and a better understanding of developing a successful iPSP/PIP.
