Iselin, NJ, July 01, 2016 --( In the run up to the event, the SMi Group caught up with Shazia Ahmad, Director, Patient & Physician Services, UBC - An Express Scripts Company. Shazia will be leading a pre-conference workshop on November 15th: “Leveraging Successful Patient Recruitment & Retention Strategies in Biosimilars Research.”

In the exclusive interview, Shazia Ahmad said, "I believe one of the major challenges in biosimilars clinical trials is the lack of understanding amongst stakeholders – as well as patients...It’s critical to engage stakeholders and physicians as early on as possible...We encourage establishing a stakeholder community so that we can gauge their interest in the program and by the time you conduct clinical trial PhIII and IV, which involves direct patient recruitment, all stakeholders will have developed a base understanding..."

"Leveraging Successful Patient Recruitment & Retention Strategies in Biosimilars Research" workshop will showcase practical case studies and examples of patient recruitment and retention for biosimilars to drive clinical excellence and thus commercialization.
