Realizing the Next Generation of Pharma and Biotech R&D

Discovery and development of medicines is resource intensive and extremely costly, taking over 10 years on average, with an estimated spend of $2.6 billion to bring a new drug to market. Recent reports suggest 70% of Pharma companies anticipate that smart technologies will positively enhance early discovery, R&D and quality operations, improving overall lab efficiency, productivity and accelerating time-to-market.

 

Diminishing returns from R&D investments, increasing costs and pressure to diversify product pipelines is  forcing Pharma and Biotech organizations to evolve and embrace the next generation of data-centric,  technology-driven, smart connected labs of the future.

 

 However, a combination of strategy, vision, infrastructure, mindset and talent is a prerequisite to drive these types of results and ensure the successful integration and implementation of digitally optimized, connected smart labs of the future.

This event will provide you with the necessary tools to:

  • Reassess digitalization fundamentals strategies to optimize lab efficiency, flexibility, agility, capacity, speed and quality to accelerate early discovery
  • Move from manual to automated workflows by implementing and streamlining digital transition at scale, resulting in autonomous end-to-end laboratory automation
  • Cultivate best practice data standards and procedures for enhanced data capture, analysis and re-use, optimizing scientific collaboration, knowledge sharing and decision-making
  • Develop talent and foster a digital mindset, guiding stakeholders through cultural change, and transition towards digitally optimized lab processes and tools
  • Balance resources, infrastructure and external partners by identifying and building relationships with key individuals and organisations, to expedite the journey towards the next generation of smart labs
