Event Overview:

The biopharmaceutical industry has seen a lot of change in recent years, between new collaborations with supplier and contract development and manufacturing organizations (CDMOs) and accelerated drug delivery times. According to recent research, biopharmaceutical figures are already using digital and analytics for their benefit, with an increase of up to 40% in plant capacity, 20% in lead time, and 15% reduction in conversion costs (1).

With more growth comes more responsibilities, and processes like cell and gene therapy are on the forefront for the latest strategies to overcome the challenges in the manufacturing space.
In this Drug Digest video, Anil Kane, Global Head of Technical and Scientific Affairs, Pharma Services at Thermo Fisher Scientific, and Jason C. Foster, CEO and executive director at Ori Biotech, will provide expert insights into what happens in the manufacturing space from a CDMO and a cell/gene therapy perspective.
