November 2020 Issue of The Medicine Maker

In the month’s issue, we examine what lessons from pandemic influenza can be applied to COVID-19 – featuring Russell Basser from Seqirus. We then move far beyond the pandemic to deep space – asking how biologic medicines can be made on-demand for astronauts on long-term space missions. In Profession, Ross T. Burn, CEO at CatSci walks us through the career experiences that have helped shape him, and in NextGen, we find out what can be done to reduce the global incidence of diabetes and its associated conditions. Brexit preparedness, precious metal catalysis, and post-pandemic pharma are all discussed in In My View. And finally, we sit down with Will Downie, CEO of Vectura Group, UK.
