“While India has a fantastic track record in generic drug development/repurposing, novel process development and pharma manufacturing, the experience in piloting novel drugs from lab to market is relatively weaker due to limited number of case studies available. This international workshop focuses on knowledge sharing from global experts and practical insights from real-life case studies. Venture Center is happy to co-organize this workshop with the goal of building translation and innovation capacity in India,” stated the note by the organizers.
