Biosimilars & Biobetters USA 2015

The global biosimilar and biobetter market is presenting lucrative opportunities to drug developers and manufacturers.

  • The first biosimilar approved by the FDA. Looking at this case in detail, how did it progress and how will it develop
    Speaker: John Pakulski, Head US Biopharmaceutical Regulatory Affairs, Sandoz Inc.
  • From approval to clinical use – what are the differences between the US and Europe?
    Speaker: Steinar Madsen, Medical Director, Norwegian Medicine Agency
  • Clinical and regulatory strategies encompassing the needs of East and West: What are the key features of a truly global development programme?
    Speaker: Gerry McGettigan, CEO, Kinesys Consulting Ltd and COO, amp Biosimilars AG (Germany)
  • Where are we now and how will we develop? Lessons learned from the first European & US biosimilars
    Speaker: Carsten Brockmeyer, CEO, Formycon AG, (Germany)
