“Drugs, Money, and Secret Handshakes” is one hundred power-packed pages from author Robin Feldman, the Arthur J. Goldberg Distinguished Professor of Law at the University of California Hastings. Feldman provided Outsourced Pharma a pre-publication copy of the book. Here’s part one of my review.
How one biotech started with a list of 35 possible CDMOs and whittled that list down to two.
Today, the success of your programs has never been more contingent upon selecting and working effectively with your service partners. This is what our annual CMO Leadership Awards are all about.
Outsourced Pharma brought together a panel of experts at sponsor companies to discuss specifically how small biopharma can compete for attention at CDMOs.
Tim Scott, founder and CEO at both a CDMO and start-up biotech, maps out financial understanding for leaders of both approaches.
Outsourced Pharma Chief Editor Louis Garguilo continues his coverage of the current state of China pharma manufacturing by interviewing Diana Francis, VP of quality and compliance for BeiGene.
To get to a full digital dialogue that includes everything from AI to blockchain to machine learning, drug sponsors and CDMOs alike will need to muster their resources to usher in what the rest of the world already calls Industry 4.0.
“Basically, industry perceives, reports, and expects no major capacity crunches” related to global bioprocessing needs.

Now we have the data to back the assertions up.
Lee Spach, Director, Global Product & Supply Chain Security, Biogen, says there are about 35,000 online pharmacies in the world. Ninety-eight percent are fake. They transact billions of dollars annually and seriously endanger patients. The criminals can expect a large return on their investment, with relatively little risk. Spach and Biogen are trying to change that. You can help.
President Clinton once said to reject permanent normal trade relations with China would be a mistake of hugely historic proportions. But years later will history judge “free" trade with China "a blunder of truly historic proportions from which America will never recover”? Enter Donald Trump. Our drug industry, dependent on China, should join the public discourse.
