The global healthcare, pharmaceuticals and biotechnology industries are shifting as the world deals with the fallout from the COVID-19 pandemic. Hear five Executive MBA alumni working in different roles within healthcare discuss how they and their organisations are adapting.
In terms of therapeutic areas, some of the reservations that we’re seeing is that clearly the focus post-COVID have been towards therapeutic vaccines, that having an impact and certainly showing great efficacy in the clinics– are people willing to spend money on those type of products? And preventative vaccines were sort of seen as something a bit boring, not much growth, and been there for ages.
新冠肺炎疫情改变了这一情况. 基因组比对分析等等, having an effective preventative vaccine for these types of pandemics, et cetera, is now being seen as a huge, huge priority. So there’s several companies that were initially thinking about divesting of their preventative vaccine manufacturing within Asia. As a result of COVID, 因此，商业实际上繁荣了起来, 现在，这当然成为了主要的价值增长动力.
So I would say that the viewpoint is that preventative vaccines has now shifted from being something– a nice-to-have, 但不是在技术的最前沿, to now being a crucial element to growth and combining that with a genomic analysis to have the best preventive vaccine has now become a very, very important growth subsector.
And is that designed for more early-stage assets, or is it also related to more late-stage assets?
So - and again, a lot of the late-stage assets– so a bit of large-cap pharma companies which have got established pharmaceuticals weren’t seeing much growth in that the margins are pretty stable. They’re now pretty low. 因此，他们开始剥离这些资产. And OTC, 非核心部分，正如你们看到的很多大型制药公司, 他们会在动物健康领域撤资或成立合资公司, OTC, 建立制药企业. And they’re reallocating that capital to key growth areas, like gene editing, cellular therapy. So it’s early stage but innovative platforms is where the focus is going to be, and the later stage, established, more molecule type stuff has become more and more sort of non-core for large-cap pharma strategy.
