Loredana Babeau-Simulescu

Senior Policy Officer, Biomedical Alliance in Europe (BioMed Alliance)

Let’s be honest, EU regulatory matters are not always the most thrilling part of the innovation cycle, but they can boost or impede patients’ access to innovative solutions. Considering their increasing role and the impact on day-to-day clinical practice, I have embarked on an exciting journey to navigate my way through the technical language and to decipher the implications of health-related regulations.

The implementation of the Medical Devices Regulation (MDR) and In-vitro Diagnostics Regulation (IVDR) was the first opportunity for experts nominated by the BioMed Alliance to contribute to different stakeholder working groups of the Medical Device Coordination Group – a group which advises the European Commission and helps ensure harmonised implementation in Member States.

We also support our members by providing information on the status of IVDR and MDR and explore how these two new regulations might affect daily clinical practice. In addition, our members deliver courses on regulatory aspects to prepare and educate healthcare professionals on the numerous changes brought by MDR and IVDR.

The multidisciplinary nature of medical research and innovation has pushed medical professionals to expand their work and interests and to build collaborations throughout the entire innovation lifecycle. The COVID-19 pandemic has reinforced the need for scientists and physicians to collectively engage with regulators and decision-makers.
