Even prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, pressures were building on the life sciences industry to address vulnerabilities in drug, biologic and medical device supply chains. While the industry's enormous contributions to the pandemic response have been lauded, the complexities and concerns emerging in the pandemic—including drug and device shortages, challenges in rapid countermeasure development and deployment, and geopolitical/trade tensions—all point to a continued paradigm shift in the way governments think about—and regulate—biomedical product supply chains. In this webinar, we outline current vulnerabilities in these supply chains and provide regulatory frameworks, international perspectives and practical methods for addressing them.
