March 2018 Issue of The Medicine Maker

Welcome to the March issue. Upfront news this month investigates a new way to tackle pain and the future of Irish biopharma following Brexit. Tiffany Overstreet argues for the role of packaging in patient adherence, in “In My View”, while our cover feature asks how pharma logistics can be improved – and whether airfreight or sea freight is the best option. In Best Practice, we explore upcoming eCTD deadlines, and in Profession, Thomas Jefferson University and NIBRT team up to deliver better training for the next generation of biopharma experts. We also sit down with Bruno Sepodes, Professor of Pharmacology and Pharmacotherapy at the University of Lisbon.
