    How To Prepare A Facility For The Biopharmaceutical Revolution

    Drug discovery is an inherently inefficient process. It takes thousands of failed compounds before one can get approved as safe and efficacious, and this effort does not come at a low cost. Because of this, the industry is constantly looking for ways to bring safe, compliant, and profitable drugs to market faster and cheaper. Patheon facility in Brisbane, Australia, exemplifies the facility needed to survive the future of pharma. But how did they do it?

  • eTMF Survey: Lagging Technology Adoption Will Impact Clinical Trials

    When you think of the pharmaceutical industry, you probably do not picture firms that are anxious to jump on new technologies, or willing to adopt new tools that have not been proven successful. New technologies are now available to facilitate the collection of data in clinical trials, yet Big Pharma and CROs are not climbing over one another to be the early adopters. So is it really surprising that with electronic trial master files (eTMF) now available to clinics, and bearing the blessing of the FDA, that many sites continue to amass large volumes of paper?

  • 7 Essential Steps To Hiring A Pharmaceutical Consultant

    In preparation for the spring 2014 hiring season, The CECON Group has recently developed guidelines for choosing the best consultant for a project. Selecting and managing a technical consultant can be a challenge, especially if the subject matter is well outside of the hiring manager’s field of expertise. In the pharmaceutical industry, consultants can help companies of any size to deal with various aspects of drug development, including the selection of suppliers and outsourcing partners.  

  • Women In Bio Profile: Industry Insights From The Executive Director Of Compliance At Seattle Genetics

    From the time she was young, Kristin Rand’s mother said she would be an actress or a lawyer. Although she thought her mother was probably correct, she didn’t like the prospect of becoming either, merely because she did not want her mother to have predicted her future. While in high school she developed an interest in genetics and the promise it held for the future of personalized medicine. Rand notes she always had an interest in the questions that science had not yet answered.  

    She began her collegiate career at Fordham University as a pre-med student but was not sure she would want to go to medical school after graduation. She opted to pursue a specialized undergraduate degree, eventually transferring to UCONN and landing on their Diagnostic Genetic Sciences Program. When she later decided to go on to graduate work, the choice was between a degree in law or molecular genetics. She chose law and finally succumbed to what her mother always felt she was naturally inclined to do. She made FDA law and bioethics the focus of her training. After working in medical communications, education, and legal for various vendor companies, she moved over to the pharma side of the house. Her first position was with Wyeth, prior to its acquisition by Pfizer. The dynamics of working in such a large and complex global organization again peaked her interest, and was the impetus for her returning to school, this time to secure a masters degree in industrial-organizational psychology.

  • Selecting Strategic Partners – The Lilly Way

    As VP of Lilly Research Laboratories’ (LRL) operations and LRL Europe, Andy Dahlem puts his reputation on the line every day. When Eli Lilly and Company implemented its new outsourcing strategy several years ago, he was tasked with implementing it. The transformation took Lilly from a fully-integrated pharmaceutical company (FIPCO) to a fully-integrated pharmaceutical network (FIPNET) with numerous external partners.

    In this position, Dahlem carries much of the responsibility for work done by external partners. If he seems very serious when discussing breakdowns in quality and reliability, it’s because he holds himself personally accountable for those lapses. “When I make a deal with a service provider to do the work, it’s my reputation that is at risk,” he states. “That is not a responsibility I take lightly.”
