This vital sector has never experienced a more challenging time. Pharmaceutical companies must accelerate R&D and upscale production in order to meet urgent demand for new vaccines, develop treatments for an ageing global population and deliver on the promise of personalized medicine, all while transforming their operations for a digital world.
