In More Depth

USP/ or a differentiating fact:

Establishing the Biotechnology Group in early 2014 as part of a strategic decision, Turgut Pharmaceuticals redefined its priorities and main objectives, and concentrated its operations and investments in the field of biotechnology. In this framework, the company determined basic requirements for developing and manufacturing world-class biosimilar drugs by collaborating with domestic and international expert organizations, identified shortcomings by examining the biotechnology infrastructure in our country, and came up with a strategic plan based on tangible data that incorporates solutions to establish a sustainable biotechnology infrastructure as quickly as possible taking into account the conditions prevalent in our country and to develop and launch high-quality biosimilar monoclonal antibodies. The investment made by Turgut Pharmaceuticals in order to implement this strategy is one of the largest in the field of biotechnology in Turkey.
