Sanofi Training Work

‘Sanofi’s pipeline both in specialty care and vaccine side is increasingly growing with complex modalities including advanced medicinal therapy products in the last 3 years. It is imperative for us to stay current with the challenges associated with chemistry, manufacturing and control of such complex products. This bespoke course helped technical teams to upskill scientific aspects and to understand end-to-end capability and regulatory requirements to manufacture such products. It was one of the best upskilling programs that we did in a few years’.
