Clemson, Nephron partner on pharmaceutical manufacturing solution

Professor Yue “Sophie” Wang, wearing black pants, a blue top and gray jacket, reaches out toward a robotic machine in a laboratory.

Manufacturing is the most common cause of national generic drug shortages, a problem that costs hospitals hundreds of millions of dollars in labor costs and alternative treatment options and leads to adverse patient outcomes.
