Of late, there has been an explosion in the field of biopharmaceuticals in activities ranging from development to manufacture. Although this augurs well for the industry; there are concerns, nevertheless.
These concerns relate mainly to the inadequacy of the skillsets needed for this industry. There is a widespread feeling in the industry circles that the existing or potential skillsets may not be sufficient for coping with the huge demand the industry is creating.
Need to understand the technologies
If professionals who are rooted in relatively more traditional areas seek to explore the opportunities that exist in biopharmaceuticals; they need to develop awareness of this field and become more familiar with the elements of this profession.
