Scientific Advisors (SAs, Medical Advisors (Mas), and Medical Science Liaisons (MSLs) play a critical function within the Medical Affairs departments. These highly educated and experienced professionals evaluate, critique, and communicate comprehensive scientific information related to a company’s products. With differences in job titles and backgrounds, day-to-day activities can vary across organizations and regions which is why MSLs and Advisors are essential to improving the understanding amongst internal departments and supporting product awareness across the broader medical community. They are very credible peers whom thought leaders rely on for current, objective, and thorough information about disease states and treatments. They assist clinical teams, often support and help train the
sales force, and develop relationships with key opinion leaders. MSLs/Advisors are key players in the achievement of corporate business objectives in the fiercely competitive European marketplace.
ExL Pharma’s MSL Best Practices Summits have a long and established history in the United States with ten highly successful events over a seven year period. These conferences continue to attract more and more industry professionals and have solidified ExL as a leader in the provision of relevant and practical information for Medical Affairs professionals. From the US-based events, a need was assessed for a similar conference to convene in Europe, so we did so. Our inaugural event in London in 2010 was extremely successful with overwhelmingly positive feedback for an annual Advisor/MSL event to take place in Europe.
We are once again very excited to bring the MSL Summit to Europe for Medial and Scientific Advisors, Medical Science Liaisons, and Leadership to gather and share successful strategies for both field-based and office-based activities. Through case studies and educational presentations led by seasoned industry, ample networking time and interactive sessions, MSLs and Advisors alike are sure to gain several takeaway approaches for providing maximum value to KOLs, the company, and industry as community.
“Excellent real-world scenarios and great ideas on how to properly handle them; well done!!”
“Great real-world examples and discussions highly applicable to MSLs – great balance between legal & medical opinions and audience participation!”
“Meeting was very engaging and interactive. Excellent thought-provoking scenarios!”
