The Pharmaceutical Industry has made significant progress, but there is still more to achieve.
In this episode, Dennis Gross, CEO of the Pennsylvania Drug Discovery Institute, discusses how his organization supports education and startups in the pharmaceutical world. He explains how to navigate patent protections and digital data and emphasizes the importance of effective communication between R&D science and the public to advance the field. The PDDI has established many relationships and partnerships with Pharma companies that can help startups or educational institutions with materials or knowledge. Dennis explains how Pharma companies benefit from supporting startups, teaming up with them to extend the life cycle of patented products with new processes or drug delivery technologies. The Pharma industry has generated numerous innovations, but the COVID-19 pandemic has also led to a wave of misinformation, making it crucial to explain scientific concepts to the public clearly and understandably. This approach will help people appreciate the discoveries instead of fearing them or thinking they were careless and happened overnight.
