As we near the July 4 holiday, normally a slower period in the world of business, we thought we would highlight some new agreements that were formally announced recently.
First, one of our newest Corporate Members Konica Minolta and GE Healthcare have expanded their relationship
to enable the former to distribute the latter's AeroDR ultra-small digital x-ray imaging technology outside of North America. Both of these entities' parent corporations made a leap of sorts years ago to get into health care, and strategic alliances are helping them diversify product portfolios and reach new markets.
Meanwhile, ASAP Global Member Astrazeneca has turned to the Sarah CAnnon Research Institute to help several of its oncology compounds
through the clinical stages of the drug development life cycle.
