Pharma-Focused Educational Programming
The pharmaceutical industry is strategically retooling to focus on specialty therapeutics and companion diagnostics. As such, the industry could see explosive growth, particularly as scientific advances catch up with untapped tech advances. The 2016 educational program will feature topics that focus on innovation and commercialization opportunities for chemical manufacturers across the drug development continuum. Topics include:
-- Innovation: A look at how pharmaceutical companies approach innovation and the greater push toward external collaboration in the early phases of R&D. -- R&D: Exploring opportunities for chemical companies in the rare disease space, which according to life science market intelligence firm, Evaluate Ltd, will represent 19.1 percent of worldwide prescription sales by 2020. -- Commercialization: Identifying best practices for successful outsourcing partnerships and perspectives on continuous manufacturing and driving manufacturing excellence. -- Regulatory: Navigating the ever-changing regulatory landscape. -- Growth Opportunities: Life science industry outlook panel featuring the host of the popular Mendelspod podcast.
"Business models have strayed from blockbuster drugs and pricing pressures have forced the industry to approach commercialization from a value-based care perspective," said Robyn Duda, InformEx brand director. "With a focus on more early stage opportunities within this key vertical, InformEx provides the ultimate venue for current and prospect customers to search for new suppliers and contract business, increase exposure to the marketplace and assess market trends and competition within the larger life science industry."
