Get Involved in Shaping the Transformation of the Pharma Industry

Michelangelo Canzoneri
2020 ISPE Biotechnology Conference

Aren't you amazed about how fast the world has come together to find a collective solution for COVID-19? We have learned in the past months that we can compress the traditional vaccine paradigm, which is between 5 to 10 years to just 4 to 18 months. 

The tremendous impact of the COVID crisis has significantly raised the global expectations and appreciation for innovation, digital, and excellence, which leads us to the question: what will the new normal be?

That's why there has never been a better time to connect, even virtually, in order to shape the transformation of the pharmaceutical industry with knowledge and expertise across the entire lifecycle.
