Pharma: The Business of Science

  • Fathima Patel

Abstract

The art and foundation of alchemy lies in the mysticism of the science from which modern pharmacy and pharmaceutical sciences arose. As the era of capitalism and corporate dominance comes under scrutiny and reflection, so too should the pharmaceutical industry take the time to take stock of its role in the modern business playing field. Most if not all pharma companies have their roots in humble beginnings where tales of compounding and formulation development in someone’s basement or garage gave birth to the present day industry giants.
