"Each year, the CMO Leadership Awards recognize the success that individual drug development and manufacturing organizations have in serving the needs of their biotechnology and pharmaceutical customers and partners," says Louis Garguilo, Executive Editor, Life Science Leader magazine and OutsourcedPharma.com. "Recipients are evaluated by the executives and managers at the sponsors the CMOs have worked, in the 5 critical categories of capabilities, compatibility, expertise, quality, and reliability.
