Interview with Tom Ransohoff of Resilience

Another of the great meetings we had at BPI in Boston was with Tom Ransohoff of the biomanufacturing partner, Resilience and he told us something about their business and the changes he’s seen since starting out.


Resilience is a biomanufacturing innovation partner, leading the pursuit of novel medicines by revolutionizing how they’re made, funded and scaled. The technology of manufacturing complex medicines, like cell and gene therapies, hasn’t kept pace with the wave of scientific discoveries fueling them. Resilience brings together scientists and engineers with access to the most advanced technologies to support, and in collaboration between academia, biopharma and governments to improve the way complex medicines are made.

Hear our discussion about:

  • what’s driving the current trend in derivatization of biomolecules
  • what life is like for a manufacturer working with newer, more complex product types and modalities
  • and where the pharma industry might be in five to ten years from now?
