Our collaboration creates multiple synergies that will benefit customers in terms of quality, timeliness and cost-effectiveness.”

We expect to jointly provide customers with unrivalled offerings in drug product development and manufacturing, and to reliably advance customers’ programs from early development through the approval and launch phases.”
