Pharma Day: Ferrer and MassBio join together to topple barriers to the European pharmaceutical ecosystem and do good

Oct 11, 2022

MassBio will join with Ferrer on November 10 for Ferrer Partner One Pharma Day 2022, an unparalleled opportunity for emerging innovators to learn from and connect with the global biopharmaceutical company. 

If you’re in the room: The day’s EU expert sessions (starting at 1PM, MassBioHub) will feature the latest insights on Ferrer’s transformative therapeutic solutions for people living with severe and debilitating diseases, partnering capabilities, market access strategies in Europe, and regulatory pathways for EMA approval. 

  • The afternoon sessions will be followed by a special winetasting experience led by Raül Bobet from the Ferrer Bobet winery in Spain, co-owned with Sergi Ferrer-Salat, Ferrer’s president. 

Meet face-to-face: Innovators (NCAA), capital seekers, and companies lacking commercialization ability—with products that are managed by medical specialists in a hospital setting, targeting low prevalent and rare diseases, and in late-stage clinical development or the pre-commercial stage—are invited to apply for a one-on-one meeting. 

  • Ferrer can provide emerging companies with the support they need to be remarkable and do outstanding work that transforms people’s lives, as well as opening up a global gateway to reliable international markets.
