Registration Steering Committee Sponsors Organizers Conference Agenda Overview

Now in its fifteenth year, the rEVOLUTION Symposium has become the place to discuss the most important strategic problems facing pharma and biotech CSOs. We will examine the organization and management of R&D to uncover new disruptive discovery and development models and assess the continued impact of pricing, reimbursement, regulation and globalization on our industry.

Since our last rEVOLUTION meeting, a lot has happened across our environment– robust financial markets, passage of health care reform, and continued scrutiny on cost containment. R&D has already begun to change – and that change will become transformational between now and 2020. The 2018 rEVOLUTION meeting thus comes at a pivotal time. Topics developed with our Steering Committee will illuminate new paths, models, and ways of thinking to enhance the industry’s research productivity and economics.
