Keynote: Building a Strong Biotech Basis in Europe – Mastering a Strategy Between Dealmaking and Own Developments

Claus Kremoser, General Manager, Phenex Pharmaceuticals AG

Europe has so far not evolved a breed of biotech companies that could match the successes of their US counterparts in terms of product developments and market caps.

A key reason for that amongst others is the lack of an appropriate biotech financing environment. Despite the lack of sufficient innovation capital, a few selected EU companies have managed to close financially attractive deals with US pharmas. This shows that there is a good technological basis but a lack of drug development efforts in the EU. One company that has demonstrated remarkable profitability just by dealmaking is Phenex Pharmaceuticals by generating revenues in the 100s of millions just with 25 employees. This talk will briefly summarize the key success factors of Phenex’s approach so far and will outline a strategic perspective how to build a biotech company in Europe from scratch to market success.

Keynote: 42 is the Answer. Now What Exactly is Your Question? Market Research in the Changing Biopharmaceutical World

Michael Pröschel, Head Northern Europe and General Manager, Vifor Pharma

The combination of data and analytics is being touted as the missing key to unlock new sources of healthcare value and innovation.

Pricing pressure will be a driving factor for the industry to move from a pure fee-for-service model to value-based care. Advances in diagnostics and personalized medicine will change our conventional business model. Increasingly non-traditional players will enter the health care marketplace.
What are the questions we need to ask today, to have the right answers for tomorrow’s biopharmaceutical world? This presentation will give you an overview of some of the challenges the industry will face by 2020 and which role market research can play.

Patient Centricity: Keeping Patients at the Forefront

Nicky Barclay-Prout, Associate Director, Research Partnership
Anne Cunningham, Director, Research Partnership

Patient centricity is a term we are hearing more and more, it is a phrase that is rapidly becoming an industry catch phrase.

As patients become increasingly involved in their own health and healthcare systems demand more evidence of outcomes, pharmaceutical organisations have been moving towards a business model that puts patients at the heart of everything they do. In this paper we will deliberate the meaning of patient centricity and why it is so important, the impact of patient centricity on pharma/biotech, discuss relevant case studies on supporting patient centricity through research and finally considerations for the future for patient centricity.

Biosimilars: How to Stay Competitive Against a Pending New Wave of Entrants

Adriënne Hoevers - den Hollander, Senior Research Manager, SKIM

Of all recent developments in the pharmaceutical industry, only few have provoked such controversy and commotion as biosimilars.

Since the introduction of the first biosimilar Omnitrope in 2006, 27 more biosimilars have been launched in Europe challenging the original brands at lower cost in various diseases. Especially the recent breakthrough entry of biosimilar monoclonal antibodies have brought a new level of complexity, making it a much tougher environment for biologics originators. It’s no longer just about lowering costs.
In this presentation we share our views on how market research and analytics can help forecast and impact the uptake of biosimilars in different market situations. We put these views into practice by sharing learnings and challenges from a recent uptake study in the area of rheumatology among physicians and pharmacists.

When Size Matters…and What You Can Do About It: Mapping the Dark Frontiers of ‘Small Data’ Modeling

Susan Schwartz McDonald, Ph.D., President and CEO, NAXION

Although some sectors are awash in Big Data, customer judgments are still indispensable ingredients in forecast models, especially in the Life Sciences.

Unfortunately, predictive analytics used to support commercialization and manage uncertainty must often rely on scanty data from small survey samples that push the boundaries of statistical confidence. We all know the routine cautions but we don’t necessarily know the permissions – and what risks are worth taking. This talk shares empirical findings that systemically map the small data space to determine where models built on samples smaller than 50 are most vulnerable, and what tactics that can be used to shore them up. Researchers can expect practical guidance on how to minimize risk, with important applications for early-stage commercial strategy and models built on small specialties or regional populations.

Beyond the Patient Journey: Mapping the Sickle Cell Ecosystem

Steve Martino, Co-Managing Partner, M Health
John Surie, Customer Insight Director, M Health

By tracing a more or less linear course through the care environment, Patient Journey research provides foundational understanding of patient flows, decision points and care gaps.

But the real world isn’t necessarily linear. Patients and care providers act within a complex ecosystem of interacting forces that shape the choices they make. This talk follows a patient’s journey through the Sickle Cell Ecosystem, exposing the often hidden influence of stakeholders such as employers and community groups over decisions made in the clinic.
