A New Paradigm

It can be tough to sit down and watch a 40 minute interview. People don't have time to make dinner, how are they going to have time to watch something so encompassing?

With that in mind, I've begun breaking down my work into bite-size video portions. I'll post them here, and update the pages on the main site concurrently.

In this short clip, my friend Dr. Gregory Weiss talks about a new paradigm in translational medicine and drug development, based on a comprehensive, global, or combinatorial approach. Watch and learn!

Contract Manufacturing Directory

Our site is always growing. The architecture elves never seem to stop building. Their resolve is impressive, now that I think about it.

I would write more, but it's probably easier if you just check it out yourself.

It's a list, that will continue to grow no-doubt, of contract manufacturing organizations all over the world.

We have also included a tool so that you can add your own company, if it's not there yet.

We're working on many more things, including a CRO list, so stay tuned for more developments to the site, and more content additions.

Input in Action.

Thank you for the ongoing feedback. We are always growing, learning, and evolving. We appreciate hearing about how you think we might be able to do things a little bit better.

Today's update is regarding the library section of the main site. We've organized it into particular portals, organized by specific verticals that are of focus and interest to us. This was a change mandated by end-user input. Thanks for making our site easier to navigate and more engaging. We will continue to listen and implement your suggestions.

Check it out!

We have more changes in the pipeline and will update you here, as it happens!

Health Biz India

I was lucky to get a great picture of the rapidly growing healthcare scene in India in my recent correspondence with Jayata Sharma, the Editor-in-Chief of Health Biz India.

As we've seen mentioned before, it was emphasized again that key opinion leaders are absolutely critical to progress and understanding of market conditions within India.

Inform yourself about Indian healthcare's first B2B news portal. Read this interview.

Value-Added Generics

I appreciate your patience in bearing with me in the last few weeks. As you undoubtedly know, I've been busy populating the library section of the main site. I am making a lot of progress, and there is even more in the pipeline.

One of the challenges has been ensuring high-quality audio. Much to my initial dismay, the sound-quality suffered on the first few recordings. For enduring this, I am grateful. After much experimentation I have found a methodology for getting things online relatively quickly and at high-fidelity.

I'm also picking out parts that I thought were of particular value. Here's a clip from Atul Sharma, talking about the importance of innovation in value-added generics.

Patient Retention and Recruitment

I was lucky enough to catch up with Melynda Geurts, Chief Operating Officer at D. Anderson & Company (DAC). As a leading service provider, the DAC team leverages clinical trial expertise, creative acumen and site management excellence to produce measurable results.

DAC is scheduled to be appearing at a couple of upcoming conferences, so I kept it brief and honed in on the critical things to remember, in terms of effective clinical outsourcing and patient recruitment strategies, like, why it's worth remembering in the first place.

It’s Ongoing.

Thanks for sticking with us. The exciting growth, over the in the library, has come somewhat at the extent of this Blog. But fear not, loyal reader. Our gradual improvement is an ongoing thing. Think of us as a value investment, good valuation (free!) and which will yield dividends over time.

We have a lot of exciting things in the pipeline, including some changes under the hood. And it's only going to get better.

In addition to technological steps forward, we perpetually reexamine and refine our ability to consistently provide high quality on-demand knowledge solutions. Our competitive advantage is in leveraging proprietary processes and a network of hands-on leaders in an array of global markets, for cost-effective, premium knowledge deliverables. We are always narrowing in on our specifically targeted verticals. We continue to grow partnerships with niche and industry specific leading content producers and distributors. Meanwhile, our in-house marketing, production, and primary research efforts sustain our unique and cutting-edge outlook; we integrate robust and renowned thought content and our own proprietary yet comprehensive gauge of industry sentiment, to bring well-contrasted strategies into sight.

For success, stay with us. It has come in incremental steps. And will continue to do so. With a minor setback or two along the way, of course. But like the Dow Jones, circa March 2009 to now, it'll be mostly up.
