What will this webinar address?

As demand for novel therapies in the oncology, diabetic and autoimmune space continues to rise, so to does investment in High Potency APIs, which offer a myriad of benefits for patients, including fewer side effects, lower dosages and a more targeted therapeutic approach.

However, potency is not without its problems. Handling, containment and manufacture of these increasingly complex molecules provides a series of challenges for manufacturers, which has led to investment in new manufacturing sites and integrated technologies1, and a rising reliance on trusted outsourcing partners.

What is needed for the pharma industry to meet the rising demand for HPAPI molecules?

The webinar will bring together industry thought leaders to discuss the latest challenges and advancements in the HPAPI market, and what is needed to meet current production demands:

  • Highlighting manufacturing challenges and opportunities in HPAPI production
  • Evaluating the role of CDMOs in the HPAPI market, when should you outsource?
  • Reviewing current site set ups and the infrastructure needed to meet demand
  • Ongoing supply chain challenges affecting the HPAPI value chain
