Mitigating Sanctions and Export Control Risks for Life Sciences, Research Institutes and Universities

Global life sciences companies, research institutes and universities face unique challenges when complying with U.S. and non-U.S. trade control laws, including complying with general and specific licenses authorizing business in sanctioned countries, risks associated with restricted parties and screening, and the complex export control requirements related to pathogens, toxins, and other materials, equipment and technology associated with research and development activities.  Join us for timely panel discussion of these topics with trade compliance officials from leading global pharmaceutical and medical device companies.  The session will cover the following topics:
