London, 03 March 2009 /b3c newswire / -  The biopharmaceutical industry must embrace the challenges posed by the current financial downturn and transform its way of conducting business in order to survive, says Dr Ran Zheng, Plant Manager of Clinical Operations at Amgen and forthcoming speaker at Informa’s BioProcess International (BPI) European Conference and Exhibition in Dusseldorf, 22-23 April 2009. www.bpi-eu.com
 
“After years of growth and prosperity, biopharmaceutical companies must now embrace this new reality,” said Dr Zheng in an exclusive interview for the event, stressing the importance of operational excellence and innovative technologies as the way forward.
 
“Companies have come to realise operational excellence as a strategy, and discipline will help to improve quality, yield and throughput; reduce waste, inconsistency and unpredictability of operations, ultimately helping companies achieve greater profitability.
