HUYA Bioscience International Announces Partnership with Changzhou Center for Biotech Development

SAN DIEGO, Aug. 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- HUYA Bioscience International, a leader in accelerating the global development of China's pharmaceutical innovations, today  announced a strategic partnership with the Changzhou Center for Biotech Development (CZCBD). This partnership will focus on advancing the worldwide potential of innovations from bio-pharmaceutical companies located in Changzhou that could meet critical global pharmaceutical pipeline needs.

HUYA is one of the first companies to have recognized China's potential to help meet the global need for new preclinical and clinical stage compounds. The company is focused on speeding the development and value creation for China sourced novel biopharmaceutical compounds in world-wide markets. HUYA has established a series of collaborations with leading universities and research institutes throughout China and has pioneered in-licensing of both preclinical and clinical stage compounds from the country.

The CZCBD, an institutional unit fully funded and supervised by the Changzhou Science & Technology Bureau, is the first biotechnology development center to operate under local government supervision. It is dedicated to establishing a comprehensive bio-pharmaceutical innovation system and to transforming the output of the more than 800 biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies based within Changzhou. These companies and enterprises represent fields including biopharmaceuticals, chemical drugs, medical devices, equipment and consumables, traditional Chinese medicine, industrial biology, bioagriculture, bioenvironmental protection and bioenergy.

This partnership enables HUYA and CZCBD to collaborate on promoting new drug development in China and worldwide. Local biopharmaceutical companies serviced by CZCBD will be able to leverage HUYA's global biopharmaceutical knowledge and network, and consult with HUYA's team of experts in drug development and commercialization. In turn, HUYA will have the right of priority review to evaluate certain research and development projects of local companies supported by CZCBD, providing advice and consultation as needed.

"HUYA is delighted to work with the prestigious Changzhou Center for Biotech Development in a partnership that aims to advance the development and commercialization of innovative pharmaceutical compounds and biomarkers," said Clement Gingras, HUYA's Chief Technology Officer and Chief Operating Officer Asia. "We are very excited about this partnership and look forward to fruitful collaborations in the years to come."

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
Containers have changed the mind of IT in DevOps. They enable developers to work with dev, test, stage and production environments identically. Containers provide the right abstraction for microservices and many cloud platforms have integrated them into deployment pipelines. DevOps and Containers together help companies to achieve their business goals faster and more effectively.
