José Marcilla, Senior Vice President SERCE (Southern, Eastern, Russia & Central Europe) at Novartis, will open our Global Leader Talks with a session entitled “Will we live 100 years? The future of the Pharmaceutical Industry”.
Life expectancy has almost doubled over the last century, from 50 to 84 years. The pharmaceutical industry is now in a context of exponential growth, with two revolutions happening at the same time: the technology revolution and the biomedical revolution, which is leading towards personalised medicines that will significantly improve our life expectancy and quality of life. As a representative of one of the world’s largest pharmaceutical companies, José Marcilla will explain the main opportunities and challenges ahead and discuss how healthcare will be delivered in the future.
