2021 in Review: Our Best Videos
Another year of the pandemic; another year of Zoom calls
Angus Stewart | | Quick Read
The editors of The Medicine Maker aren’t just writers. We’re Zoom pros too! Put your feet up and bask in some of the content we have created over the past year. Here are our top five editorial videos, featuring our very favourite experts and interviewees.
1. Interview with Sharon Brownlow of the UK Cell & Gene Therapy Catapult
Cell and gene therapy can revolutionize medicine, but first it needs infrastructure. In the UK, that’s exactly what the Cell and Gene Therapy Catapult is working to create. In parts one and two of this in-depth interview, the Catapult’s Chief Business Officer Sharon Brownlow spoke to us about the pivotal role she played in securing collaborative research funding with partners, and supporting the growth and productivity of the field.
2. Interview with Joe Healey, CEO and Co-Founder of NanoSyrinx
NanoSyrinx is a discovery-stage synthetic biology biotech developing a novel delivery modality for complex biologics. In Part 1 of this interview we spoke to its founder, Joe, about his career and the story behind this exciting young company. In Part 2, Joe discusses the major trends in the cell and gene therapy space, the ins and outs of investment, and what the future holds.
3. Editor Stephanie Sutton interviews Mike Rea of IDEA Pharma
Mike Rea is a man with opinions. In his chat with Stephanie, our fearless lead editor, Mike breaks down why the conventional wisdom behind drug launches and positioning is completely back to front. It is time to cast out the oracles. Watch, and you will understand. (Alternatively, you can read this interview in Q&A form HERE.)
4. Our 2020 Power Listers on COVID-19, Leadership, and the Future of Pharma
Our 2020 Power List set the bar high – so high that picking the champions of our 2022 list will prove no mean feat. For this video, we rallied four pharma thought leaders for a back and forth on the pandemic and what it means for the future of the industry. Note that we uploaded this conversation back in January 2021 – so consider this video a portal back in time to an earlier stage in the evolution of the pandemic!
5. Vaccine Experts on Pandemic Preparedness and Learning from the Past
Speaking of journeys back in time, we admit we are cheating slightly here. This digital roundtable featuring Adrian Wildfire, Rebecca Cox, Marco Cavaleri, Daniel Hoft, and Pieter Neels went up to our channel in December 2020, but the insights were so rich that we simply had to include it in this list.
That’s all for our Youtube year-in-review. Want to suggest topics for future videos? Want to offer yourself up as an interviewee? We’re all ears, so drop us an email here: [email protected]
