BioBanking, Lean Lunches and Serendipity

On a typical day, I spend at least a few minutes browsing this blog and the LABVANTAGE social communities on LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook. I’m looking to see who is talking about what and who is new. While browsing our LinkedIn group, I noticed something a bit out of the ordinary. In a community composed of customers, employees and other interested followers from all over the world, I noticed a new member of the latter type who had much in common with me. His name is Jon Wetzel, and it turns out that, like me, he lives in Southeast Michigan and is a graduate of my alma mater, Michigan State. Go Spartans!

Biomolecular drugs (Biologics – therapeutic proteins and Mabs) have leveled the playing field – a) about as many new biologics being approved each year as new small molecule drugs (NMEs); b) all the big Pharma now have the capacity to develop both types of drugs (note the recent buy-out of Genzyme by Sanofi-Aventis), c) those that had biologics capacity are increasing it., d) the larger biotech companies are developing the capacity to develop small molecules, and e) now with many blockbuster biologics nearing patent expiration biosimilars are on the way.
