Prof. Wouter Dewulf of the University of Antwerp and Academic Director of C-MAT will share his opinions on the impact and possible scenarios to be expected. He will be joined by other opinion leaders representing pharmaceutical companies including Marc Schmid of Novartis and Kathleen Buckley of Johnson&Johnson. The sharing by the opinion leaders would follow with a round table discussion led by Jaisey Yip of Changi Airport Group and Pharma.Aero’s Vice-Chairman, Alex Leung of Cathay Pacific and Paul Delbar of Nallian.
Following the conclusion of the webinar, an executive summary will be shared on the Pharma.Aero website, LinkedIn profile and via The STAT Trade Times network.
