Episode 035: How Translational Science Can Solve Pharma's Productivity Puzzle
May 15, 2019
Jeffrey Stewart / Riaz Bandali / George Scott

The infrastructure we rely on to create new medicines is in sore need of an upgrade. More and more investigational drugs are streaming into the pipeline. But most of them fail in clinical trials, draining corporate resources, disappointing investors, and shattering the hopes of patients.  Financially speaking, return on investment (ROI) for R&D in biopharma is at an all-time low of 1.9%.

In a recent article, Riaz Bandali, President, Early Phase Clinical Services and George Scott, Senior Vice President, Early Phase Operations for Syneos Health, posit that translational science – the evidence-based process of converting research findings into tangible health improvements – offers companies an opportunity to make better decisions about the clinical path for an investigational drug.  

Listen in to hear more from Bandali and Scott about how companies can use translational science as a toolkit for determining very early on which drug candidates will have the best chance of breaking through to clinical – and ultimately – commercial success.
