Norm is an industry veteran having tenure with Amgen, Millennium, Shire and now CRL—covering various sides of the Procurement world within. Our interview for the Lab Chat will be focused on Supply Chain Resiliency Strategies and impact the pandemic had on them. What was reinforced, what changed and what will remain going forward as a result of the constraints we saw this past 18 months. CRL was closely involved in all the vaccination research that was accelerated to give the World a solution quickly and having hands in all sides of the industry from being both vendor and CRO for external partners, were forced to bulk up their Supply Chain in order to stay operational for their Customers and the World calling on them for support when it was needed most.
