Innovation Issue

PharmaVOICE Magazine — April 2016 Issue

The life-sciences industry has always been driven to innovate — from first-in-class medications, biologics, and devices to new products and services — to meet the needs of the patients it serves at every level.  In recent years, there has been an increased focus on creating disruption to revolutionize the status quo of R&D, delivery, practice, commercialization, information, and communications around much-needed medicines. This special issue will tap a variety of innovation experts who will provide their insights on a number of topics critical to erupting change, including why some companies are better at innovating than others, strategic and organizational factors that distinguish successful innovators, the importance of the intersection of technology and medicine, as well as:

  • Innovation incubators and hubs
  • Business models
  • Investment and funding
  • Drug discovery
  • R&D
  • Data management
  • Technologies
  • Communications
  • Patient services

And much more…
