PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT STRATEGY – ESCP, Estimating Product Performance Part 4 – Building Playgrounds & Fences
Josef Bossart, PhD, introduces, in a series of short articles, a qualitative model to help understand and visualize the potential of a product with prescribers, patients, and payors. This simple model can help weed out product ideas that may at first glance seem attractive but offer little potential in the real world.
Ashley Jacobi says while there are many ever-improving tools available to scientists performing ground-breaking research, and the potential of CRISPR genome editing appears limitless, there remain challenges that need to be overcome to realize the technology’s full potential.
Robert Davidson says there have been significant advances in clinical development of this novel drug delivery system, and the technology is rapidly moving from just a theory to practical real-world application.
