OBN CEO Interview: Getting to know David Loew, CEO of Ipsen

Event Start Date: 02/09/2021 12:30

Event End Date: 02/09/2021 13:30

We will also find out more about the culture that David is fostering at Ipsen, one focusing on entrepreneurship, agility and patient-centricity. 
John Harris will be digging a little deeper during the interview to understand whether Ipsen's R&D focus will remain with Oncology, Neuroscience and rare disease, or are there plans to move their research into other therapy areas and how strategic will the UK be in these future plans?
John will also be keen to understand David's views on some wider issues currently facing the life sciences industry, including whether large pharma organisations should re-invent their R&D models and move away from the traditional sequential, bottom-up process of target-based drug discovery to a more fully integrated, top down, systems-based approach?
Finally, we'll be keen to hear David's view on the post-pandemic regulatory landscape; now that we've seen much more flexibility & speed in approvals, how do we ensure this is continued on into the future?
