In July, a delegation of the State Institute of Drugs and Good Practices, a federal budgetary institution, visited the United States.
This was a fact-finding visit, during which the participants got insight into the organizational structure of FDA, American regulatory framework for the pharmaceutical industry, activities of PDA, PhRMA, ISPE, and discussed the educational activities and joint educational modules with the regulators. The offices and associations visited by the representatives of SID&GP offered to present their organizational structure and activities in order to share useful experience.
Following the visit, the Education Center of SID&GP reached the agreements in the area of experience sharing and instructor exchange. The agreements reached with the Keck Institute and the University of South Carolina provide for creating joint educational modules and sending 2 students to study Master’s Program in Biopharmaceutical Sciences.
The official ceremony for the opening of ISPE Eurasian branch (Moscow, October 2017) and presentation of the ISPE Eurasian branch at the joint conference of ISPE and FDA (San Diego, October-November 2017) have been planned together with ISPE management.
Also before the end of this year, FDLI Journal and the official publication of PDA will publish the articles describing the activities of the Institute and Russian Inspectorate.
