Conference paper

Abstract

Biopharmaceuticals are the fastest growing sector of the pharmaceutical industry, currently accounting for ten per cent of total pharmaceutical sales, and over one third of drugs in development. They are frequently breakthrough products, where no effective treatment was available before. Biologic medicines are significantly more complex than chemical drugs, costing more to develop and manufacture Thus bioprocessing (devising the process and manufacturing the goods) is important both in its own right, as a high value manufacturing sector, and as a component of the overall biosciences sector.
