Fran Gregory, PharmD, MBA, vice president of emerging therapies at Cardinal Health, examines the evolution of the oncology biosimilar space in this special episode of Not So Different to close out Global Biosimilars Week 2023.
On this episode, The Center for Biosimilars® we dive into the heart of the fourth annual Global Biosimilars Week. This event sheds light on the rapidly evolving landscape of biosimilars and their critical role in transforming the health care industry.
Now, you might be wondering, what is Global Biosimilars Week all about? Well, it's an annual social media awareness campaign hosted by the International Generic and Biosimilar Association (IGBA), where experts, thought leaders, and industry pioneers are invited to discuss the latest advancements, challenges, and breakthroughs in the realm of biosimilars. The significance of this week goes beyond the surface. It's a catalyst for fostering collaboration, driving awareness, and pushing the boundaries of innovation in biosimilar development. And today, we have a special guest who is at the forefront of this transformative wave in health care.
Joining us is Fran Gregory, PharmD, MBA, vice president of emerging therapies at Cardinal Health. As a returning guest on the podcast, Fran brings a wealth of experience and insights, particularly in the realm of oncology biosimilars—an area that holds immense promise for improving cancer care and making these crucial treatments more accessible. In fact, estimates project that the incidence of cancer is projected to surge to 30 million patients worldwide by the year 2040, underlying the need for more affordable treatment options for these patients.
In our conversation with Fran, we'll explore the dynamic landscape of oncology biosimilars, the challenges and opportunities in the growing biosimilar industry, and what we can expect on the horizon. So, buckle up for an enlightening discussion as we unravel the layers of biosimilars during this Global Biosimilars Week special.
