BioM WebSeminar: Navigating the U.S. Healthcare Market - Insights into DSCSA Compliance and IRA's Impact on Drug Discovery

The webseminar Navigating the U.S. Healthcare Market - Insights into DSCSA Compliance and IRA's Impact on Drug Discovery provides valuable knowledge into the U.S. market, exciting insights into current developments such as DSCSA and IRA, and a unique opportunity to interact with industry experts.

The U.S. is recognized globally as a leading innovator and research center in biotechnology. At the same time, the U.S. healthcare market is constantly changing and offers companies a wide range of opportunities as well as challenges.
