Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s 19th Annual

Strategic Alliance Management Congress

Advancing Pharmaceuticals through Collaborations & Partnerships

May 9-11, 2022


The development and successful approval of new drugs and therapies increasingly relies on the strategic partnerships forged across pharma, biotech, academia, tech and beyond. For these partnerships to be successful and mutually beneficial, alliance management must manage the process and people efficiently and effectively. The quantity, scope, and complexity of these alliances has ushered in new alliance models, innovative strategies, and best practices to maximize value and advance the development of new therapies.
