February Life Science Luncheon Topic Announced

The Indiana Health Industry Forum and Barnes & Thornburg are pleased to present Indiana’s longest running, monthly networking and educational program for the health science sector. Broadcast via videoconference to audiences across the state, Midwest, and other key national locations, the Life Science Luncheon Series is an excellent way to network with industry peers, ask direct questions of experts in a variety of fields, and learn first-hand about issues directly affecting your business. At each luncheon session, a policymaker or a panel will present their views on a select topic and will then be available to answer questions concerning major challenges and opportunities in the health science sector. Life Science Luncheon programs are held regularly, the third Tuesday of every month, from 11:30 – 1:00 PM. We hope you will join us.

“US v. Europe – How is our regulatory pathway affecting access to therapies and technology?”

Faster approval times for devices and a defined path to approval for biosimilars in Europe are driving US pharma and device companies to seek approvals abroad first and making the U.S. a second or third tier medical market. Please join us as we explore key differences between the two approval systems, take a closer look at the approval process for biosimilars and medical devices, and discuss the ramifications on patients seeking access to new therapies.
