Digital Strategy Now In Focus
In an exclusive interview with Scrip, Chugai's CEO says the now 20-year-old strategic partnership with Roche has been one of the keys to Chugai’s successful growth and has allowed smooth market expansion for both firms, as well as enabling R&D investment by the Japanese firm. A flexible, platform-based approach to R&D, rather than focusing on specific target diseases or technologies, has also benefitted Chugai, Osamu Okuda noted.
