COVID-19 has drastically changed ways of working in the Life Science industry. Overnight, teams moved online, while new research had to be prioritised. Life Sciences were already moving towards more remote working, and the pandemic has only quickened this shift. There is no doubt these changes have fundamentally changed the Life Science sector and how professionals working in this space operate post-pandemic. However, uncertainty still remains about the viability of remote working for the sector and there is a divide between those able to work remotely and those who need to go into ‘wet labs’. Is remote working a step too far for Life Sciences? Collaboration 2020 saw an increase in collaboration between professionals working across different areas of Life Sciences. Interestingly, organisations who may usually compete came together to share data and work towards a shared goal. Collaboration is essential in Life Sciences, yet for many, remote working reduces spontaneous teamwork and creativity. New flexible lab spaces may be the future for Life Sciences though. RUNLABS have recently opened their first fully equipped flexible lab space in Paris for scientists and companies working in Life Sciences. This space hopes to builds on the existing collaborative approach in the industry and encourage further cooperative innovation. Efficiency Many employees noticed a spike in employee efficiency when working remotely. By eliminating commutes and increasing flexibility, employees were able to be more productive with their time. Remote working also allowed organisations to streamline processes and reduce time spent in meetings. However, insight from McKinsey highlights that research and development leaders estimate productivity has fallen by between 25 and 75 per cent due to remote working. Those in pharma manufacturing have reported lower levels off efficiency, as well as the potential for lower-quality outputs. Research The pandemic forced remote trails to become a necessity, and since then, they have increased in popularity. While face-to-face research is still preferrable, remote trials can reduce costs and improve efficiencies. Indeed, on-site monitoring accounts for a significant portion of the costs of bringing a new product to market, yet this is no longer necessary in remote trials. Not only are remote trials more cost-effective, but they can open research to a wider range of patients and can increase the communication between trial participants. Diversity Flexible working can run a risk to diversity and inclusion though. McKinsey also notes that, ‘when faced with a crisis, leaders often revert to relying on the core team of people they already know and trust. This disproportionately affects women and minorities because they are often not part of that group. Differences in perceptions and experiences of inclusion results in individuals or communities being disenfranchised, which can be devastating to careers and create a two-tiered culture.’ We know that 27 per cent of D&I leaders say their organisation have put all or most of their initiatives that embrace diversity and inclusion on hold because of the pandemic. However, remote work unlocks new hire pools and opens up the workplace to a more diverse workforce. Workers are no longer restricted by their geographical location or personal circumstances. Flexible working is an opportunity for Life Science organisations to harness a wider talent pool and increase their diversity. There is no doubt that Life Science is one of the most cutting-edge sectors globally and the pandemic has only cemented this. COVID-19 has shown the potential for remote working in life sciences, and in-person health care professional access may never return to pre-lockdown levels. But, going forward life sciences need to remember remote working is not practical for everyone nor every role. Organisations will need to consider individual wellbeing and role efficiency as they decide their next step.

As COVID-19 unfolded, the Life Science discipline was thrust into the spotlight. The pandemic has shown the extent of the Life Sciences industry’s ability to innovate and collaborate. When facing a new disease, Life Sciences adapted quickly. The rate at which pharmaceutical companies successfully developed COVID-19 vaccines was unprecedented. Approaches that may have previously been labelled risky, were implemented to manage changing demand and deliver increased throughput. Embracing digitisation and innovation enabled organisations to adapt and accept constant change. The pandemic has shown just how well the Life Science industry is able to innovate and develop according to changing demands. As the world looks to the future, how can Life Sciences continue to remain dynamic? Cloud data The cloud is becoming a CEO agenda item for Life Sciences. The cloud has the potential to enable more effective and profitable ways of doing business throughout the life science industry. It offers a powerful, secure platform for innovation and collaboration, with immense transactional power and data throughput. The cloud is necessary for creating data enablement, ensuring the right data is in the right place at the right time. It enables companies to innovate faster, work at a greater scale and increase collaboration. Virtual communication According to Accenture, sixty-one per cent of healthcare professionals now communicate more with pharmaceutical sale reps than before the pandemic. 87 per cent now want either purely virtual or a blend of in-person and virtual meetings post-pandemic. New means of virtual communication have created new opportunities in the industry. Digitisation allows for increased communication with trial participants and new opportunities to educate people about their conditions and care. There was already a growing trend for virtual healthcare interactions, but the pandemic has shifted this is into becoming the new normal. Collaboration ecosystem COVID-19 has led to increasing collaboration between companies. The race for a vaccine has seen cooperation evolve at an extraordinary pace. Companies who usually compete are now coming together to share data and cooperate. Organisations have created collaborative agreements in a matter of weeks; partnerships that pre-pandemic would have taken years to create. The industry is now seeing the value of ecosystem partnership. The success of organisations post-pandemic relies on this continued collaboration. AI and blockchain technology COVID-19 has increased the focus on AI in Life Sciences. Yet, Life Sciences have only scratched the surface of AI capabilities. AI has the potential to transform the industry; it can design novel compounds, identify genetic targets, expedite drug development and improve supply chains. The use of AI in Life Sciences is expected to continue to grow and organisations will need to focus ever more on merging human knowledge and AI capabilities. Blockchain is also becoming increasingly trusted in Life Sciences. Its ability to create tamper-proof records makes it a key resource in increasing patient trust in remote clinical trials. As more of the industry understands the skills needed to use blockchain and increases collaboration, blockchain has the potential to become ubiquitous in Life Sciences. The pandemic has shown the importance of digital technology in Life Sciences. Digitisation increases efficiency and, collaboration, and also helps create a framework for future scientific discoveries. As we look towards a post-pandemic world, a successful Life Science industry must continue to embrace this mindset of innovation, collaboration and dynamism.
