Special Issue | May 2018

In the next special issue of Pharma Technology Focus, we take a closer look at some of the latest developments in biotechnology, including the revolutionary gene-editing tool CRISPR, which is quickly emerging as a key tool for drug target identification, as well as preclinical testing.

We also consider what regulatory steps need to be taken to improve the US adoption of biosimilars as it flags behind Europe, examine how the biotech M&A landscape is likely to develop over the course of 2018, as large pharma firms look to pad their pipelines with new acquisitions, and sit down with Dotmatics to find out more about the latest version of the company’s data visualisation tool Vortex.

Finally, we ask whether artificial intelligence can be used to extract genomic data and discover relevant biomarkers, and learn more about a new method of manufacturing proteins outside of a cell.
