Overcoming operational hurdles and igniting clinical trials

In an era characterised by remarkable breakthroughs in drug discovery, development and biotech innovation, many say we’re in the midst of a ‘golden age of biology’.

In fact – between 2012 and 2021 – the FDA alone approved more than 400 new medicines and therapies. This is up by 73% from the previous decade and the number is set to rise with thousands of next-generation gene and cell therapies being tested in clinical trials across the globe.
