In this fireside chat brought to you by Conversations in Healthcare, Mike Ward, Global Head of Thought Leadership at DRG talks to Joe Panetta, President and CEO of BIOCOM. Joe talks around how BIOCOM has worked closely with government officials to ensure the life science community can continue to function throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, and how they’ve worked with these officials to develop guidance for this community on how they can safely return to work. Joe discusses how COVID-19 has affected funding for biotech companies, the ability to build international relationships with global companies and how new digital practices such as virtual partnering could be a new way of developing these relationships post-pandemic. He also passionately describes how the industry needs to become more patient centric, as it has with COVID-19.
