- Primary Sponsors
Promising new therapies, diagnostic techniques, and drug delivery technologies are within reach—but the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries face unprecedented economic and regulatory challenges to bring these products to market. Through real-world partnerships, role-playing scenarios, and interactive audience participation, this one-of-a-kind program will examine both the typical and unanticipated hurdles along the pathway from discovery to commercialization. We will look at efforts that were highly successful, and some that were not, in such areas as:
- Early-stage financing, driving commercialization through partnerships
- Acquiring technology outside a firm’s core competency
- Managing resources through third party strategic sourcing
- Collaborating on a global stage
Anyone who has experienced, or may experience, the myriad of technical, legal, economic, or cultural issues that arise in business collaborations will find these vignettes excellent interactive learning opportunities.
