Welcome Address by Viveka Roychowdhury, Editor, Express Pharma

The first edition of Pharma LabNext Conclave 2021 kickstarted with a Welcome Address by Viveka Roychowdhury, Editor, Express Pharma. Speaking to the august audience, she said, “On behalf of the Indian Express group and the Express Pharma team, I extend a warm welcome to our colleagues from the pharma fraternity, to the inaugural edition of Pharma LabNext Conclave. After the success of FDD Conclave and PPL Conclave, we are today creating one more platform to unite yet another segment of the pharma fraternity that is under-recognised: laboratory personnel, be they from the analytical or R&D side. Again, like packaging and formulation development experts, this is a much neglected, but vital force. In fact, they are the silent strength, and part of the backbone of any pharma company.”

She added, “We have been witness to the ramping up of research and development, and manufacturing of new therapeutics and vaccines over the past year for SARS-CoV-2. Their role in controlling the Covid pandemic has be very visible. But working behind the scenes is an army of specialists who had to test each batch, from research through manufacturing to release.”

“Pharma LabNext Conclave, with the theme, Pharma Labs the Next Frontier, hopes to spotlight these vital yet unseen experts who are constantly looking for better, faster, more accurate technology and techniques to keep pace with evolving regulations and patient needs,” stressed Roychowdhury.
