Trial Master File (TMF): Meeting FDA Expectations


Companies engaged in the conduct of human clinical trials must adhere to specific government regulatory requirements.  Certain documents, content and images related to a clinical trial must be stored and maintained, and depending on the regulatory jurisdiction, this body of information may be stored in a trial master file (TMF).  This seminar will help you understand in detail the new requirements for trial master files.
