Tri-State (NY/NJ/CT) CACS Annual Symposium Held in New Jersey

Tri-State (NY/NJ/CT) CACS held its annual symposium on June 25, 2005, at Shering-Plough Research Institute, Kenilworth, New Jersey. The theme of this symposium is “Chemical and Pharmaceutical R&D in a Global Environment.” ACS president Bill Carroll attended the symposium and gave the opening presentation. He gave a prospective of the American chemical enterprise in 15 years, laying out the trend of globalization and its effect on American chemical industry, government policies, and research at academic institutions as well as government labs. His message was that change is inevitable, and the American chemical enterprise is better off prepared to face the challenges. He also spoke of his recent visit, as a part of an ACS delegation, to China, pointing out some of the common issues he had noticed that face the two countries (drawing students’ interest to science, for example).

Other speakers at the symposium were either top managers at industrial research labs or successful chemical entrepreneurs of Chinese origin. Dr. Rene Imwinkelried, the vice president of Process Chemistry at Shering-Plough, gave a talk on “How China Will Become a Valuable Outsourcing Partner for Drug Development,” in which he remarked that the trend toward globalized effort in the process of drug development is inevitable. Outsourcing is an effective way of improving a company’s competitiveness. Pharmaceutical companies should seize the opportunity and benefit from it.

In a joint presentation, Dr. Ge Li, CEO of WuXi Pharmatechs, and Dr. Richard Soll, CSO of Targegen, shared their international collaborative experience with the audience. Mr. Paul Guo, CEO of AstaTech, spoke on his experience in managing human resources in an international company. Dr. Wuping Ma, president of SynChem, told the audience his thought process in starting up and growing his company, which changed from a venture for personal success to company success for all its employees. His company currently employs 70 people, 20 in Chicago and 50 in Shanghai.

A rarity at this symposium was a professor entrepreneur, Prof. Xumu Zhang of Penn State University. His world-class research in chiral catalysis led to the founding of ChiralQuest in 2000, which is listed in NASDAQ. Prof. Zhang described the product line of ChiralQuest and outlined its business plan which included expanding operations to China. His story was an inspiration to the symposium attendees.

“This year’s symposium had the strongest program in all the years of Tri-State CACS symposium,” remarked Dr. Yuguang Wang, the president of Tri-State CACS. Twelve speakers offered an audience of 150 a full day of informative perspective on R&D in a changing environment. “Our motto for the symposium is,” according to Dr. Wang, “that the theme must be the most interesting, the speakers must be top-notch in chemical and pharmaceutical areas, and the audience must benefit from it.” As in the past, the symposium required no registration fees, and free breakfast and lunch were provided.
