January 2017 Issue of The Medicine Maker

Welcome to the January issue. Upfront investigates the relationship between pharma and patients, Donald Trump’s attack on pharma, and chemically functionalized spider silk. In our cover feature, we quiz past contributors for their opinions on 2016 – and ask them what priorities and resolutions the industry should focus on for 2017. NextGen explores modeling in bioprocess development, and in Profession, Rafaat Rahmani explains how he built an award winning global company from the ground up. We also sit down with Dominic Carolan, CEO of the National Institute for Bioprocessing Research and Training (NIBRT).
