The COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak continues to grow worldwide – recently declared by the World Health Organization as a global pandemic – with widespread personal, medical, and business implications. 

In this first episode of our Coronavirus Special Edition Series, we hear the personal experience of Dr. Siying Zou, a cell biologist on the Syneos Health Consulting team in the United States. Dr. Zou is from Wuhan, China – the epicenter of the COVID-19 outbreak – and her mother and other family members have been diagnosed with the disease. This is her family’s story from the front lines, from lockdown, to hospitalization, to hope.

Stay tuned for more installments of the Coronavirus Special Edition Series, which will explore, from an operational standpoint, the impact of COVID-19 on the biopharma industry, the challenges for rapid R&D in an outbreak environment, and the opportunities to leverage technology and innovation to address these critical issues. Additional materials and insights can also be found in our COVID-19 Resource Center.

If you want access to more future-focused, actionable insights to help biopharmaceutical companies better execute and succeed in a constantly evolving environment, visit the Syneos Health Insights Hub. The perspectives you’ll find there are driven by dynamic research and crafted by subject matter experts focused on real answers to help guide decision making and investment.
