BioBreakfast Series: Creating Value through Outsourcing
Increasingly, biopharma companies are turning to outsource providers for services including both non-clinical and clinical activities through final product manufacturing. For small companies, outsourcing decisions can become strategic drivers of business value and the achievement of a successful exit. Therefore, choosing the best contract services providers and developing successful programs are critical management challenges.
This program will feature a panel of industry experts, including the BioPark's Marco Chacon, who will share best practices and real life practical experiences with outsourcing and describe key ingredients that are necessary to find a suitable CRO. Our speakers will address issues related to what and when to outsource, how to establish an effective outsource program, avoid pitfalls, decrease risk, and drive the business value proposition.
