Linda Bowen, MSc, RAC, FRAPS

Head of Regulatory Policy and Intelligence

Seattle Genetics, Bothell, WA

Program Topic:

In this session Ms. Bowen will examine the fundamentals of global regulatory intelligence, including what it is and isn’t, how it is conducted, the strategic value it brings to key stakeholders and how it is imperative to regulatory decision making throughout a development program and lifecycle management of a therapeutic product. Specifically, the presentation will focus on:

  • Defining Regulatory Intelligence (RI) and its key components

  • Understanding RI skills and competencies

  • Outlining sources of regulatory information and why information ≠ intelligence

  • Identifying regulatory trends

  • Explaining the role of impact analysis

  • Discussing the consultation procedure and how to communicate RI effectively within an organization

  • Answering whether Regulatory Policy is the same as Regulatory Intelligence
