    How To Strengthen Risk Management Practices In The Pharmaceuticals Supply Chain

    The end customers — i.e. the patients — are largely uninterested in the complexities of the pharmaceutical supply chain, and if something goes wrong in the supply chain the responsibility and consequences are inevitably borne by the pharmaceutical manufacturer listed on the product pack.

    Academia Is Pivotal To The Future Of Pharma Innovation

    We all know that biosimilars have been driving several recent M&As (e.g., Hospira) across the industry.
