        The importance of leaders building knowledge across the whole business.
        Understanding the jigsaw - your success is dependent upon the success of your colleagues.
        Taking opportunities, leaning into risk, and backing yourself through belief and hard work.
        The evolution of the gene therapy and cell therapy space, and the operational challenges it brings.
        How contract service providers must anticipate rather than react to future pandemics and new areas of development.

    The accidental CDMO

    The accidental CDMO

    In this episode of Molecule to Market, your host, Raman Sehgal, discusses the pharmaceutical and biotechnology supply chain with guest Richard Johnson, Founding Director of Upperton Pharma Solutions. With more than 25 years of experience in the industry, Richard is a founding director of two, successful pharmaceutical companies. He has authored 30 scientific publications and is the named-inventor on more than 20 patents. His research experience spans a broad range of scientific disciplines particularly in the field of pharmaceutical spray drying and drug delivery. This knowledge has been used in the successful development of a number of pharmaceutical products from early research to testing on patients.


    Your host, Raman Sehgal, discusses the pharmaceutical and biotechnology supply chain with Richard, covering:


    Greater collaboration and alliance between smaller, specialist early phase contract service providers as a way to compete against the global one-stop-shops.
    Increased demand for nasal and pulmonary delivery as a result oft the pandemic. And why Richard was not surprised to see a Covid-19 vaccine developed so quickly.
    The contrast of founding a steady 20-year growth business and the another that exited in just five years.
    The increasing demand and application for spray drying technology to solve modern pharmaceutical development challenges.

    The entrepreneurial scientist

    In this episode of Molecule to Market, you’ll go inside the outsourcing space of the global drug development sector with Alok Tayi, Vice President of Life Sciences at Egnyte and the founder of the Biotech 2050 podcast. Alok has a very impressive academic and entrepreneurial background in life sciences, before running the fast-growing life science division at Egnyte, he was a Co-Founder of PreScouter and TetraScience, raising millions along the way. Having completed a postdoctoral fellowship at Harvard University, he has also been published in Forbes and Nature.
    Your host, Raman Sehgal, discusses the pharmaceutical and biotechnology supply chain (and a whole loaf more) with Alok, covering how he founded, built and scaled two life science software companies… and then did it all over again as a vertical of a larger organisation. Alok shares the lessons he learned while raising millions in VC capital and the value of building relationships early on. He explains how CDMOs and CROs can become more strategic with biotech clients by seeing themselves as data and knowhow specialists. Finally, Raman and Alok discuss the journey of the contract services space and how the landscape has shifted from a largely transactional rigid business to becoming the foundational bedrock of the life science domain.
