Biotech trends in COVID era: the pharmaphorum podcast

In episode 26 the pharmaphorum podcast hears from David Solomon, a 30-year life sciences industry veteran who recently took up the position of CEO at the Paris-based biopharmaceutical company Pharnext.

Drawing on his experience with companies such as Silence Therapeutics, Akari Therapeutics, Bionor Pharma and Zealand Pharma, David picked out some of the key biotech trends for the current era of COVID-19.

These included the use of big data and artificial intelligence in drug development, with a focus on hard-to-treat, neurodegenerative diseases.

He also spoke about Pharnext’s progress to date in its mission to develop novel therapeutics for orphan and common neurodegenerative diseases, such as Charcot-Marie-Tooth Type 1A – an inherited neurological disorder that affects the peripheral nerves.
