In this exclusive interview, Fintan Walton talks to Ben Cons, Vice President of NovaQuest, about NovaQuest’s functions and operations, and how these differ from those of its parent company, Quintiles Transnational. Ben talks about the financial commitment NovaQuest has made to its partnerships and how this is split between its biotech and large pharma clients. He outlines the two principle ways in which NovaQuest operates with companies, and how it shares some of the risks and returns. Ben discusses the current changes in the industry, the drivers for these changes, and how they affect NovaQuest’s business. He highlights some examples of partnerships that show how the company is adapting to these changes – in particular he discusses its alliances with Eli Lilly and Solvay Pharmaceuticals. Ben talks about how NovaQuest manages the risk within its alliance portfolio and the company’s approach to its equity contributions in life sciences companies.
