Lifesciences, Outsourcing, And Growth Opportunities In India

Press Release

TiE-Boston Lifesciences Forum and TiE Women’s Initiative (TiE-Win)

are delighted to announce a discussion on:

Lifesciences, Outsourcing, and Growth Opportunities in India

The U.S. biopharma industry is facing several emerging challenges, triggering the need for a new business model for the industry. As R&D costs escalate and R&D productivity stagnates, pharma companies face increasing pressures to outsource several tasks and R&D processes. At the same time, India’s emerging lifesciences industry has demonstrated nascent capabilities in both discovery and clinical development, and promises to provide a complementary set of capabilities to U.S. and European biopharma companies. With the enforcement of the WTO TRIPS agreement in January 2005, intellectual property (IP) issues are expected to become less of a hurdle, potentially triggering a dramatic shift in the global biopharma industry. The keynote speaker and panelists will discuss these issues and present their opinions.
