Life Sciences in Russia: An Emerging Sector for a Robust Emerging Market
For Immediate Release
Contact: Val Kogan
President, Mid-Atlantic Russia Business Council
Philadelphia, PA. May 20, 2010 — While the U.S. remains the current world leader in bio-pharmaceutical innovation, Russia has adopted a goal to become a major exporter of innovative medicines and healthcare technologies by 2020. Russia recently overhauled its medicines law and has set a firm timetable for transition to compliance with Good Manufacturing Practices and to integrate registration requirements for international clinical trials. Life sciences research in Russia ranges from bionanotechnology to xenotransplantation, and a swath of new bioclusters is emerging across the country. The key question now is to how to foster dialogue between Russia and the U.S. on innovation in mutually-beneficial ways.
This question was addressed at the Russia-American Pharmaceutical Conference, held in late April 2010 in Philadelphia, PA, a major center of bioscience research in the U.S. Co-organized by the Mid-Atlantic - Russia Business Council (MARBC) and the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America (PhRMA), the conference also kicked off the 12th Semi-Annual Russian-American Innovation Technology Week (RANIT). One of the key outcomes of the conference was the need for an ongoing dialogue in the sphere of innovation in the life sciences. These topics were further explored with Russian and U.S. experts at the Russia country seminar at the BIO International Convention on May 3, 2010.
“Countries around the world came to BIO to show how they are competing to be the leaders in developing innovative medicines,” said James Class, Associate Vice President of International Affairs at Pharmaceutical Research & Manufacturers of America. “Russia and the U.S. can be partners in this competition. The winners will be patients around the globe, who will have faster access to new medicines.”
Continuing and expanding dialogue be the key theme for an upcoming Russian-American Life Sciences Conference on June 23, 2011 in Philadelphia, PA. The 2011 conference will also inaugurate the 14th Semi-Annual Russian-American Innovation Technology Week (RANIT), which will highlight the biotechnology, nanotechnology, and pharmaceutical industries and conclude with participation at the 2011 BIO International Convention in Washington, DC.
Mid-Atlantic - Russia Business Council President Val Kogan noted the importance of continuing the dialogue in Philadelphia. “The Mid-Atlantic region is a key player in innovative medicines with long-held ties to Russia,” Kogan said. “It is the natural place to resume the dialogue between Russia and the United States.”
The 2011 conference will be designed to see increased involvement by key Russian and American policymakers, including the Health and the Business Development Working-Groups of the US-Russia Bilateral Presidential Commission. The Joint Commission has identified life sciences and pharmaceuticals as a focus area for joint activity between the Russian and U.S. governments. The Russian-American American Life Sciences Conference, Russia country seminar at BIO, and additional Russian-American Innovation Technology Week programs and activities are designed to help foster dialogue and cooperation on those topics.
