Luwy Musey- clinical research

Clinical research, in particular clinical trials, is a critical step in the process of vaccine production. It is through this process that trust with the vaccines industry is built. Dr Luwy K Musey, Director in Biologics, Vaccine Clinical Research at Merck Research Laboratories, joined us at the World Vaccine Congress 2012 in Washington to detail the process of clinical research in relation to emerging markets. The key topics covered were:

1. Drivers for conducting clinical research in emerging markets

2. Potential risks/challenges in conducting clinical research in emerging markets

3. Quality of clinical research in emerging markets
