CRANBURY, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Center for Biosimilars®, an online resource for emerging therapies that focuses on improving patient outcomes, launched its latest video interview series featuring Sheila Frame, vice president, head of biopharmaceuticals, North America, Sandoz, a Novartis Division. The interview discusses the evolving pharmaceutical marketplace and the role of Sandoz in the growing field of biosimilars. The first five segments of the 12-part series are available online.
During the interview, Frame said: “If we don’t create the room in the marketplace to take advantage of these savings now, then we are not going to be able to have access to those new innovations.
