Al­though the Biose­cure Act “may cre­ate short-term un­cer­tain­ty” for the wider bio­phar­ma in­dus­try, the Shang­hai-head­quar­tered com­pa­ny “re­mains stead­fast in ‘do­ing the right thing and do­ing it right,’” WuXi AppTec CEO Ge Li said in the com­pa­ny’s first-quar­ter earn­ings press re­lease Mon­day.
