The conference theme, "Biotech Kaleidoscope," aims to explore the boundless possibilities of biopharmaceuticals through cutting-edge technologies. As an international event, the discussion surrounding the successful entry of Chinese innovative drugs into the global market remains highly significant. Dr. Du Tao, a seasoned FDA evaluation expert with extensive experience in technology transfer, delivered a keynote speech titled "Overseas Transfer Strategies for Chinese Innovative Drugs."
