As October nears an end, with UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s plans for an October 31 Brexit thwarted, and uncertainty surrounding the general election on December 12, the country’s future as a hub for pharma research and development (R&D) and manufacturing is unclear. In her talk, “Brexit and the implications for Pharma – is it a deal or no deal?”, Bonnie will examine how Brexit is expected to affect the healthcare sector within and outside the UK, as well as discuss the findings of GlobalData’s quarterly industry surveys on Brexit preparedness.

Bonnie will also share insights into the advances of digital technology and its value to the entire pharma value chain in the talk “Digital disruption is knocking – is healthcare ready?“. How will key technologies such as AI, blockchain, biosensors, robotics and 3D printing provide opportunities for healthcare in the near-term?

CPhI Annual Report 2019

PharmSource analyst Adam Bradbury provides a number of key insights in the forthcoming CPhI Annual Report 2019, writing that the recent increase in drug approvals and priority review shows the future is bright for the contract manufacturing organization (CMO) industry.

Bradbury commented, “New drug approvals are on the way up, as the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved 11% more innovator therapies in 2018 compared to the previous year, spelling good news for both marketing authorization holders (MAHs) and CMOs. Data also show small and mid-cap pharma companies especially are increasingly turning to outsourcers to manufacture newly approved drugs.”
