Meeting with Novartis

This week with met with Mark Smythes on behalf Novartis, one of the sponsors of the programme. In addition to providing the interns with a yummy lunch, Mark was able to give us a lot of information with regards to the role of Pharmaceuticals and Novartis in particular, in research and development in Ontario. In order to ensure the maintenance of strong life sciences in the province, Mark identified some of the most important areas that need to be focused on, including an investment environment, talent and a track record of market success. It was a very informative meeting for the interns as we were able to learn about the relationship between pharmaceutical companies and the politics at Queen’s Park.
