Pharma and nanoelectronics: a growing love story

An expert opinion on the potential for the pharma industry to benefit more from the state-of-the art in technology.


Over the past decade, and especially during recent pandemic times, the pharmaceutical sector has been simultaneously flourishing and struggling. Since pharmaceutical interventions are invaluable and indispensable for managing our health and saving lives, the market potential is booming.

However, high rigidity coupled with proven but ‘old’ methods are causing production efficiencies and innovation levels to decrease while costs and price levels increase and reach unsustainable levels.

Liesbet Lagae, program director of life science technologies at imec, shares her insights on how technologies such as nanoelectronics and artificial intelligence can combine with clever partnerships to turn the tide for pharma.
