About Conference


Dear Participants, On behalf of the Organizing Committee as well as the Program Committee, it is our great pleasure to invite you to the 2019 KoNECT-MOHW-MFDS International Conference to be held on September 17th – 19th at the Conrad Hotel, in Seoul Korea.

As a one-of-a-kind conference on clinical trials in Asia, this year’s meeting is more special than ever, co-hosted by Ministry of Food and Drug Safety and supported by Ministry of Health and Welfare. With our partnership, the three-day-long program will include 4 workshops, 2 plenary lectures and 14 sessions that will address the most relevant and applicable topics pertaining to new technologies and approaches

in clinical trials, regulatory science, real world studies, data-driven approaches, and the continuously evolving issues on ethics as well as patient-centric approaches in 3 parallel tracks.

We would like to thank all the members of the International Program Committee for their excellent work in ensuring the high level of quality of the conference program. My special thanks go to MFDS for advancing its mission of public health through this collaboration.

We hope that you will find your participation in 2019 KoNECT-MOHW-MFDS International Conference very stimulating and rewarding. Moreover, we truly believe that a few days’ stay in Seoul will give you an ample opportunity to enjoy and to learn more about Korea.

We wish all the participants to enjoy the 5th KoNECT International Conference and have a pleasant stay in Seoul.
