HyderabadPHARMA SUMMIT 2019

A Pharma Intelligence report reveals that the global R&D pipeline in 2019 will have more than 16,000 drugs, with a majority in anticancer, neurological or biotech areas.

In a bid to remain competitive and sustain its success, India Pharma Inc is also looking at capitalising these opportunities by making a transition from a mere generics manufacturer to a developer and supplier of innovative medicines. It is focusing on pioneering R&D and developing speciality/targeted therapies to ensure its continued progress. And, as a major life sciences hub, Hyderabad is well poised to lead India’s growth story in the pharma sector.

Therefore, Express Pharma, a leading industry publication from The Indian Express Group, is organising the first edition of Hyderabad Pharma Summit on October 18, 2019 at Mansarovar the Fern, Hyderabad Hyderabad.

Co-creating a smart ecosystem for pharma

The current scenario calls for the creation of a more efficient and innovation-centric ecosystem which would be aligned with global trends and requirements. This transformation is also pivotal to deal with the myriad challenges faced by the industry such as evolving regulations, pricing pressures, and competitive business environments, etc.

Hence, under the theme, 'Co-creating a smart ecosystem for pharma', the inaugural edition of Hyderabad Pharma Summit will witness stakeholders in the pharma industry brainstorm on strategies to implement smart approaches in pharma with the help of technology and meet evolving business needs. The summit will also outline the policies required from the Telangana state government to attract and nurture the pharma industry in the state.

It will also address several other crucial topics such as:

Building sustainable business environments
Scaling-up R&D capabilities

Ensuring brand protection
Reducing dependency on API imports
Securing the supply chain
Capitalising on Genome Valley 2.0
