April 2019

In the next issue of Pharma Technology Focus, we take look back at a decade of discovery from Action Medical Research, a research charity focused on funding breakthrough treatments for conditions affecting children, and round up the biggest drug development success stories from China as a pilot reform puts pressure on pharma companies to invest in innovative research and development projects.

Also, we examine the issue of snake bites and the role of snake venom in drug development, speak to drug policy reform campaigner Amanda Feilding about the most urgent policy issues yet to be addressed in the UK, and investigate the steps big internet companies are taking to stamp out the scourge of dodgy online pharmacies.

Plus, we take a look at the plans for the UK’s first vaccines innovation centre, explore ways that pharma companies are reaching patients in the social media age, and examine how the pharma industry in Italy is developing.
