Mastering Quality: Building a Strong Foundation for Your Pharma Startup (Live Webcast)


Course Description:

Quality, with its checks and balances, is the foundation and a key to success for your pharma startup. A proactive, vigilant culture of quality is patient-focused and science-based, allowing you to identify and respond to issues while they are still small. It affects access and availability of medicines to support the commercialization of your product pipeline. Assuring quality becomes a competitive advantage as it creates higher yield, dependability, and sustainability to support your business needs.
