On this episode of Managed Care Cast, we’re highlighting a hobby from a biosimilar expert who says he can make whisky more accessible and affordable through—you guessed it—his own biosimilar whisky.

On the After Hours section of Medical World News, we like to show you what scientists, researchers, health care providers, and others are doing in their spare time to relax and recharge. On this episode of Managed Care Cast, we’re highlighting a hobby from a biosimilar expert who says he can make whisky more accessible and affordable through—you guessed it—his own biosimilar whisky.

Sarfaraz K. Niazi, PhD, is an adjunct professor of biopharmaceutical sciences at the University of Illinois and the University of Houston, and a member of the advisory board of The Center for Biosimilars®, a sister site to AJMC.com, the website of The American Journal of Managed Care®.

On a recent episode of After Hours, he spoke with Matthew Gavidia, an associate editor at AJMC.com, about his unusual whiskey-making hobby, the history of the traditional process, and how he distills his own biosimilar version.
