Research and development within biotech is plagued by high failure rates that limit the speed of progress. In recent years, it has become clear that the current level of productivity is no longer sustainable given the immense cost of R&D. For example, within drug development the challenge is manifested prominently in the low success rate of developing preclinical therapy candidates into commercial products. The same problem is faced by all sectors including agri-tech and white biotech.
