PRINCETON, N.J., Aug. 2, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Informex, the leading meeting place for buyers and sellers of high-value chemistry, today announced the introduction of a new conference, 'Business Strategies for Biologics: Positioning and Partnering for the Biopharmaceutical Evolution' to be hosted October 5-6th, 2011 in Boston, Massachusetts. The two day conference will cover on-trend topics regarding the future of pharma, sourcing strategies for biologics, regulatory challenges, and opportunities in biosimilars. Speakers will include senior personnel from Merck, Novartis, Pfizer, Sanofi, Genentech/Roche, and Boehringer Ingelheim.
"We created this new Biologics Conference to provide attendees with valuable and relevant content to help them successfully navigate the changes and challenges in the rapidly growing biologics sector," Jennifer Jessup, Global Brand Director, Informex noted. She continued, "With Industry forecasts indicating that by 2014, 50% of the top 100 and seven of the top 10 drugs will be biologics(1). This is a rare opportunity for companies to strategize and get settled into an early stage market with expectations for tremendous growth."
As the blockbuster drug patents begin to expire, a massive shift towards R&D of biologics and biosimilars has been happening industry-wide. Chemicals companies are seeing this translated into redefined global business demands. It is imperative for pharma companies to have the tools available to strategize for shifting their pipelines into this sort of R&D. The Biologics Conference will provide these tools, and will also offer valuable insight into evaluating and maximizing competitive advantages as more and more services are being outsourced globally to satisfy the market.
The Biologics conference will provide opportunities to learn from and network with department heads, directors and C-level executives from big Pharma, CMOs, CROs, C
