For the 2017 CMO Leadership Awards, Life Science Leader magazine teamed up with Industry Standard Research (ISR) to determine the award recipients, which are published in their March Life Science LeaderCMO Leadership Awards Supplement.

More than 80 contract manufacturers were assessed by 26 performance metrics in ISR’s annual Contract Manufacturing Quality Benchmarking survey. Survey participants were recruited from Pharma and Biopharma companies of all sizes and only evaluated companies with which they had worked on an outsourced project within the past 18 months.

The 2017 Life Science Leader CMO Leadership Awards ceremony and reception will be held on Wednesday, March 22nd at the W Hotel, 541 Lexington Ave, in New York City.
