This week on the podcast, we’re speaking with Cate Lockhart, executive director of the Biologics and Biosimilars Collective Intelligence Consortium (BBCIC) about the acceptance process for biosimilars in the United States, what BBCIC is doing to help the market develop, and how this transition will affect the pace at which biologics come to market.
