September 3-18th the road trip will cover 1,000 miles around Ireland visiting Dublin, Galway, Cork, Waterford, Interviewing 37 companies, and Discovering what’s next in pharma in Ireland on a local and global level.

The Normax Interview

The interview questions answered by Normax included:

  1. How is Normax working to realize the future of healthcare? 
  2. How have the last few years transformed the mRNA vaccine field? 
  3. What diseases are you currently developing mRNA vaccines against? 
  4. Can you explain the Vax Factory concept and why it’s the right vaccine approach? 
  5. What can you share about Normax’s culture and values and how they drive your mission?
VIDEO DAY 2 in DUBLIN (4:00)

We pivoted to mRNA Vaccine R&D as a business and also scaled down smaller vaccine factories that could be modularly manufactured and distributed and have a distributed CDMO business model that could fit with our Vaccine R&D business. We think that there could be literally 100’s maybe even 1000’s of products that could address diseases. Whether that be infectious disease, or cancers, immunotherapies. It’s part of nature, obviously. mRNA is in every cell- every body. DNA in every cell. So this is transformative business. We are excited about saving lives, frankly.
– Peter A. Jensen, CEO & Chairman, Normax
