Should Pharma cut its losses and get out of R&D, or does it still have a role to play in medical research?

The Economist Events is holding its 19th Annual Pharma Summit 2013 in London on Thursday, 28th February 2013. The summit will be held at The Dorchester Hotel,  Park Lane London, W1K 1QA from 8:30am to 5:00pm.

The Pharma Summit has become an established key global event for the healthcare industry, attracting and gathering some of the most influential names in the global pharmaceutical and healthcare industries. This year's theme 'Back to basics -the real business of Pharma' will assess the challenges the industry is facing as the last remaining blockbuster drugs reach the end of their patent protection.

"This year's conference theme is particularly pertinent." said Edwin Moses , a panel speaker and the CEO of Ablynx. "We have to start looking beyond the patent cliff when assessing the health of the Pharma industry, especially in light of tight healthcare budgets and R&D productivity. The Pharma Summit brings together some of the industry's leading experts who have a unique insight into these issues and the significant trends in the space at the moment."

The event will focus on a number of topical issues, such as the change in Big Pharma business models post-blockbuster, the shifts in the drug discovery and development paradigm, and Pharma in an age of austerity, explored through a series of thought provoking keynotes, panel discussions, interviews and debates.
