September 2020 Issue of The Medicine Maker

From the fringe of the fringe to the brink of a revolution in medicine – we get the cell and gene therapy story from the society that was there at the very beginning: ISCT – in this month’s cover feature. Best Practice looks at the importance of the patient voice in drug development, and why single-use systems have come to be so well regarded. In NextGen, we find out about the problem with patents when it comes to artificial intelligence. We also sit down with Kelly Chibale to discover his passion for Africa’s pharma industry.
