BioPharma Dive & PharmaVoice Explore Future of Life Sciences in Virtual Event

BioPharma Dive and PharmaVoice are teaming up to host a two-day virtual event, The Next Frontier of the Life Sciences, exploring the top trends shaping the future of biotechnology and pharmaceutical sectors. The award-winning editorial teams from BioPharma Dive and PharmaVoice will bring together industry leaders to discuss issues ranging from building a biotech startup to launching new drugs. 

Attendees will have the opportunity to hear unique keynote presentations and to interact with past and current PharmaVoice 100 honorees and industry peers during engaging panel sessions. There will be two breakout tracks each day, allowing attendees to create a tailored experience and choose between panels on genetic medicine, biotech startups, research hot spots, and drug commercialization. The event will wrap up with a celebration of this year’s PharmaVoice 100 honorees where we will announce this year’s Red Jacket recipients — the PharmaVoice 100 “hall of fame.”

Here’s what to expect during the free two-day event:

Day 1: Wed., October 25th 1pm - 3:30pm EDT 

  • 1pm Featured keynote — Fostering breakthrough science: Innovation is the backbone of biotech. This keynote will discuss what it takes to create an innovative culture and how companies can turn scientific breakthroughs into pipelines that go the distance.
  • 1:25pm Panel discussion: After our keynote, join C-suite leaders who will discuss the state of innovation and how to “future proof” your pipeline.

    Next, attendees can choose from the following concurrent sessions:

  • Track 1 - 2:10pm - 3:30pm - Building a biotech startup: Young biotech companies have contended with a down market that, for much of this year, all but closed the IPO window. In our first discussion, hear about the steps some are taking to overcome this challenge, and how it is changing venture firms’ approach to funding promising research. Then, biotech executives and investors will share lessons learned from this challenging environment in our second session. 
  • Track 2 - 2:10pm - 3:30pm - Genetic medicine: This year could bring the first approval of a CRISPR medicine. Behind it is an ever-growing pipeline of therapies with many twists on gene editing. In Session 1, get an understanding of what’s next for the field, followed by our second session covering what it will actually take to get these drugs to patients.

Day 2: Thu., October 26th, 1pm - 4:30pm EDT  

  • 1pm Featured keynote — The patient of the future: From wearable devices to interactive apps, the patient experience is becoming more digital and streamlined than ever before — especially in the realm of clinical trials. This keynote will zoom in on this rapidly evolving landscape and what it means for how pharma tests and develops drugs. 
  • 1:25pm Panel discussion: Hear from clinical trial pros who will explain how technology is transforming the space and what the future holds.

    Next, attendees can choose from the following concurrent sessions:
  • Track 1 - 2:10pm - 3:40pm - Research hot spots: New Alzheimer’s and ALS drugs have put neuroscience research back in focus, while Ozempic and Wegovy sparked an industry gold rush for the next weight loss treatment. Join these two back-to-back sessions to learn what’s driving these fields forward.
  • Track 2 - 2:10pm - 3:40pm - Commercialization: As emerging technologies transform drug commercialization, it’s an opportune time for companies to explore their plans for launch. In our first session, industry pros will discuss the marketing  strategies to keep, and the strategies to ditch, followed by a discussion on how the evolution in patient access will impact  orphan drugs.

Thurs, October 26th at 3:40pm - 4:30pm EDT
PharmaVoice 100 Celebration and Red Jacket announcement 

We will conclude this exciting two-day virtual event by celebrating this year’s PharmaVoice 100 honorees. Every year, PharmaVoice salutes 100 trailblazers at the forefront of science, business and the push to better serve patients. Join us and your peers as we toast this year’s class of honorees.
