“My appointment to partner shows the importance of Drug Delivery to CDP and the global healthcare marketplace. The healthcare landscape is changing in all of the world’s key geographies due to a combination of rapidly ageing populations, increased patient load on healthcare infrastructures and financial pressures on providers.
CDP is already innovating in this space with a number of the world’s leading manufacturers who are seeking to address these challenges. Among areas we can discuss, we’re looking at the managing high viscosity formulations in drug products, how device connectivity can support dosage adherence and continuing to increase usability and compliance across all new device developments.

I look forward to spearheading the further expansion of our Drug Delivery capability and team here [in the UK] and in our US office in Palo Alto to support this work.”

CDP partner and founder, Mike Cane on Uri’s appointment to partner — “He [Uri] will lead the expansion of the important Drug Delivery Device sector at CDP.
