December 14 - 15, 2016
The Ritz-Carlton, Washington, DC,
Driving Momentum Towards Approval of New Therapies
Join THE biopharma event that facilitates direct dialogue between biopharma executives, investors and FDA/CMS regulators to explain complex regulatory and reimbursement policy.
Be Prepared for the Wave of Public Policy Changes
As we convene for the 11th Annual FDA/CMS Summit, election year rhetoric will have transitioned to the realities confronting a new Administration. We’ll discuss what the future holds for the Affordable Care Act and health reform more broadly in a post-Obama landscape. We’ll examine the state of biosimilars in the US, and how these medicines may impact the cost curve for biologics as more reach the market and uptake becomes measurable. Transparency around pricing – even for the most innovative drugs – remains a contentious issue, with multiple state-level initiatives designed to limit drug spend. A full range of topics to be discussed include:
Updates Directly From CDER and CMS
- Regulatory Updates from Center for Drug Evaluation and Review (CDER) and the Insights into 2017
- Updates on the Breakthrough Designation Program from the Office of New Drugs
- Updates from CMS on Medicare Part B and Value-Based Pricing

- Priority Review Voucher Proliferation
- Influence of Patient Advocacy Groups on Drug Review Processes
