Bindhumadhavan Gururajan

"Two things that are top priorities in the pharmaceutical industry at the global level are these: One, setting the 'gold' standard, meaning that the drug product is viewed as valuable as gold; and two, quality by design, that is, build in quality rather than try to achieve it as an end-result."
