Bass, Berry & Sims attorneys Clint Hermes and Nesrin Tift will co-present a webinar hosted by the Association of Clinical Research Professionals titled, “Research and Expanded Access in Pandemic Times,” on November 10, 2020.

Because few alternatives exist, experimental COVID-19 therapies and diagnostics are being made available to patients and providers before clinical trials have established whether those products are safe and effective. Attendees will get an overview of the mechanisms through which this happens and will learn how this has affected researchers’ ability to generate substantial evidence of product effectiveness through high-quality clinical trials.

This webinar is for clinical research, regulatory affairs, medical, scientific professionals, and anyone else who wants to understand the framework and practical implications of cutting-edge policy debates in this once-in-a-century public health emergency. This course was approved for 1.0 ACRP contact hours.

Clint provided more insight on this topic in the ACRP blog post available here.
