New program to DCAT Week! This executive forum features on-stage interviews with leading industry executives on the key drivers influencing pharmaceutical and biologics manufacturing and supply, including how technology and product mix are impacting demand. Get an inside perspective on the current and future direction of both internal and external supply for active pharmaceutical ingredients (small molecules and biologics) and drug products (solid dosage and parenteral drugs) and overall global manufacturing competitiveness.

Plus, gain insight on these pivotal issues:

  • How is global manufacturing competitiveness influencing supply strategies, and what are major risk factors?
  • What are the key issues influencing make-versus-buy decisions?
  • How are manufacturing strategies for small molecules and biologics evolving? 
  • What are optimal approaches for managing supply of lower-volume drugs?
  • What role will continuous manufacturing have in the near and long term?
