    We cordially invite you to attend the upcoming PDW on "Strategy and Innovation in the Biopharmaceutical and Healthcare Sectors" at the Academy of Management Annual Meeting 2023 in Boston. Participation is open for the panelist presentations and discussion (Parts I and II), but pre-registration is required for the round table discussion (Part III).

    The purpose of this PDW is to foster and deepen scholarly conversations around important strategic themes of the biopharmaceutical and healthcare sectors that are of interest to a broad group of scholars at the academy but also practitioners and policymakers. We bring together a group of leading scholars to discuss issues of corporate and business strategies, innovation and entrepreneurship, and how regulations and institutional policies shape strategies. Overall, the goal of this PDW is to provide a lively forum where scholars can develop a shared understanding of research on various topics in the biopharmaceutical and healthcare industries and provide important insights into how next-generation scholars may employ novel theories and methods to develop future research. We also hope to exchange knowledge on novel datasets in these sectors.

    This two and a half hour PDW will follow a three-part format. 

    Parts I & II, 8 AM – 9:20 AM (Open to all participants)

    In the first part, six leading scholars (Francisco Polidoro, Anita McGahan, Thomas Klueter, Umit Ozmel, Jennifer Kao, and Sungyong Chang) will share insights on each of the key current topics in the biopharmaceutical sectors. The second part will consist of a semi-structured panel discussion among the presenters.

    Part III, 9:20 AM – 10:30 AM (Requires pre-registration due to limited space)

    The last part will contain two roundtable discussions with the panelists. Prospective participants will apply to the PDW by submitting a brief description of a research idea to be explored with the discussants and other participants. To participate in the round table discussion, please fill in this form prior to Friday, July 7, 2023: PDW Interest Form (https://forms.gle/UWJb224gFt8MqSie8). Acceptance will be notified by mid-July 2023.

    Please feel free to reach out to Sukhun Kang (skang@london.edu) or Sandip Bisui (sandip.bisui@colorado.edu) if you have any questions.
