Billerica, Massachusetts, September 28, 2015 – EMD Millipore, the Life Science business of Merck KGaA of Darmstadt, Germany, today announced that it has published an original white paper, recognizing the impact the emerging biotech community has on the future of healthcare.

The paper is based on discussions during the company’s Emerging Biotech Executive Summit on June 15, 2015 in Philadelphia. At the event, forty biotech leaders from across the USA, representing over one hundred molecules, came together to have an open dialogue around the emerging biotech community, early-stage investments and partnerships as well as how to build value, credibility, and recognition on the road to clinic. This white paper builds upon that discussion.

As a partner of the life science industry, EMD Millipore recognizes the impact the emerging biotech community has on the future of healthcare. Udit Batra, President and CEO of EMD Millipore, reinforced the company’s commitment to this community during his opening presentation at the summit.

“Emerging biotech companies are a critical component and source of innovation, helping to bring groundbreaking drug products to market. These companies could capture a much higher share of value by bringing new molecules further along the development track,” says Batra.

By building upon the panel discussions that were initiated at the summit, EMD Millipore’s new white paper provides insights from executives in alliance management, in-licensing and venture funding around the challenges that these companies face, including limited capabilities, expertise and funding, and insight on how to conquer them. It is a valuable source of information for any emerging biotech firm looking for strategies of how to best push their molecules through the pipeline and ultimately to market.
