Despite its success in rushing COVID-19 vaccines to market, the biopharmaceutical supply chain is far from perfect.
Biopharma has played a starring role during the COVID-19 pandemic, developing and distributing vaccines in record time. Still, the industry is way behind the curve in adopting new technologies that will make its supply chain more efficient and responsive. On this episode, we get an idea of the way forward from Maia Hansen, senior vice president and head of operations and supply with Athersys, Inc. She discusses the need for digitization of business processes, in order to vault the industry to the front of the line of innovators, and ready it for the next global crisis. She also discusses how her experience in the U.S. Navy, where she was an officer in the Civil Engineers Corps for nearly five years, prepared her for a supply chain position in the private sector. Hosted by Bob Bowman, Editor-in-Chief of SupplyChainBrain.
