Co-founder of Regulatory Consultants Group

Jacqueline Bushong

Sr. Director, Head of GCP Quality Assurance

at Kiniksa Pharmaceuticals in La Jolla, CA

Program Topic:

No matter if your company is a Sponsor or Clinical Research Organization, large or small, brick and mortar or virtual, we all need to be ready for regulatory inspections. Ideally, quality is built into the culture and processes where you work, & getting ready for an inspection is fairly easy.

But with competing priorities, external competition, rushing to meet corporate deadlines, and a need for speed even a Quality Culture can suffer some setbacks from cutting corners, too much work, and too few resources. Compliance is challenging and getting ready for inspection can be fraught with stress and worry. Take a deep breath and learn how to simplify your activities, manage timelines, and have everything ready for that BIMO inspection of a recent regulatory submission.
