On Thursday April 23rd, HollandBIO organizes its first Biotech Thursday dedicated to biobusiness entrepreneurs. During this edition of Biotech Thursday, we will discuss the outsourcing of early drug development. The concept of externalizing discovery by outsourcing to CROs is gaining in popularity. Moreover, the virtual biotech company is on the rise. Two entrepreneurs will share their outsourcing experiences and an IP specialist will advice on how to handle IP and contracts when outsourcing early R&D. One of the specific cases to be discussed during the event is the European Lead Factory. The full program will be announced soon.
