Curia’s Approach to Rapid Scale up and Development

The webinar will focus on truncating drug development timelines in the aftermath of Covid. The featured speaker will lay emphasis on phase-appropriate development, offering creative solutions and round the clock development across various continents.

The webinar will also highlight tech transfer into various sites within the Curia network. Using a global sourcing team to find raw materials that have a diversified supply chain, the speaker will discuss how they have adapted and learnt lessons from the Covid outbreak.
