The 2019 edition is the 8th edition of the CMO Leadership Awards, organized by the journal Life Science Leader ( Life Science Leader developed the CMO Leadership Awards in 2011. Life Science Leader’s readership of pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical executives has developed the CMO Leadership Awards. These Awards are based on research from Industry Standard Research’s Contract Manufacturing Quality Benchmarking annual online surveys, more than 120 conctact manufacturers were evaluated on 23 different performance metrics. Research participants were recruited from biopharmaceutical companies of all sizes and were screened for decision-making influence and authority when it comes to working with contract manufacturing suppliers. Respondents only evaluated companies with which they have worked on an outsourced project in the past 18 months. This level of qualification ensures that quality ratings come from actual involvement with a business and that companies identified as leaders are backed by experiential data. CMOs have an opportunity to win these awards in up to 3 groups of outsourcing respondents – Big Pharma, Small Pharma, and Overall (Combined Big and Small Pharma).

Industry Standard Research (ISR) is the market research used for the awards ( ISR’s survey participants were asked to provide an expectation rating for each CMO they have worked with in the past 18 months in one of four outsourced manufacturing surveyes: Small Molecule API, Biological API, Small Molecule Drug Product, and Biologic Drug Product. Respondents answered over 45 questions on outsourcing practices and preferences and rated CMOs across 23 performance attributes. Points were then totaled for a combined score for each attribute, and a composite score for each core category was determined. Winning CMOs were identified when comparing their overall score vs. the competitive set.

Our President and CEO - Aldo Braca - after the awards ceremony has declared that: "We are honored to receive the CMO Leadership Awards in several categories for the second year in a row. BSP Pharmaceuticals is continuing its strategic growth, by investing in new technologies and highly qualified professionals, to increase the support to innovators in the anticancer arena.
