Staburo took part in this year’s BVMA symposium on 25 November 2016, at the Sheraton München Arabellapark Hotel, here in Munich.

The BVMA represents the interests of the German CROs. The member companies maintain a lively exchange of information on all topics which are of particular importance to the CRO branch, e.g. on

  • Questions of liability and insurance
  • Education and training
  • Quality requirements and
  • Trends in the pharmaceutical and CRO industry

We also attended the get-together on 24 November 2016, at the Sheraton München Arabellapark Hotel, where we met current partners and other companies that currently need biostatistics support.

This year’s sessions gave a great update on regulatory news, risk-based clinical research and advanced study designs. Especially the latter was very interesting for us, since we see an increasing demand from our clients in this field and build up a very good expertise in recent years, e.g. in adaptive/Bayesian designs.

Big thank you to the great organization of this event, despite the interfering Lufthansa strike!
