According to the concept of the Award, Expert of the Year is a person whose achievements, contributions to the development of the industry, city or region, gain recognition by the professional community.

In 2014 the competition included 10 nominations in major industries such as defence industry complex, energy conservation, and energy efficiency, development of industrial parks, biomedical technologies, environmental technologies, IT-technologies, construction and building materials industry, university science parks, and urban development innovations.

For GEROPHARM it was a period of significant investments in the business development: expansion and commissioning of constructed production facilities, release of drugs in new forms, launch of R&D projects.

In 2013, GEROPHARM completed a major project in the Moscow Region on the construction of Russia’s first manufacture of genetically engineered human insulin on the basis of a full cycle: starting from the substance biosyntheses up to the ready dosage form. The new plant became a modern biotechnology platform releasing effective drugs for import substitution, and having prospects for the implementation of new complicated complex technologies critical for the drug safety promotion within the country.

Currently, GEROPHARM is developing drugs for diabetes treatment, including analogue insulins under the federal target programs of the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation, nootropics, drugs for dementia and brain injury treatment, and urological drugs, which is a total of more than 15 projects.
