MasterControl's Patricia Santos-Serrao to Provide Tips on Bringing TMF and eCTD Together

SALT LAKE CITY, UT--(Marketwired - Feb 3, 2017) - Patricia Santos-Serrao, RAC, director of clinical and regulatory solutions of MasterControl, will deliver a presentation titled "Bringing TMF and eCTD Together: Is Your TMF Submission Ready?" at the Drug Information Association (DIA) Regulatory Submissions, Information, and Document Management Forum. The conference will run February 6-8 at the Bethesda North Marriott Hotel and Conference Center in Bethesda, Md.

This presentation will be part of Session 2 Track 3: "EDMS in the 21st Century, Better, Broader, More Flexible." Santos-Serrao will discuss the EDM Reference Model and how it relates to Electronic Common Technical Document (eCTD) and how the Trial Master File (TMF) Reference Model relates to Trial Master Files and the use of TMF artifacts in eCTD submissions. She will also provide tips on how to bring eCTD and TMF together and ensure they are set up to coexist within an Electronic Document Management System (EDMS).

The DIA Regulatory Submissions, Information, and Document Management Forum provides insight into the end-to-end process of managing regulatory submissions and documents. It saw record attendance in 2016, as it serves as the premier place for the discussion of emerging operational standards, best practices, and the processes for submission, creation, and maximum use of regulatory information. The forum continues to explore information generated along the drug development continuum life cycle and alignment to ever evolving regulatory and electronic standards.
