Top Sites for Pharma and Biotech News
The pharmaceutical and biotech industries are so vast and change so quickly that no one source can keep you up to date on every piece of news. From the latest company mergers to the newest drug approvals, the business is constantly evolving. Check out these sources for free breaking news, agency announcements, trends, and analysis.
Something to keep in mind while reading and browsing online—be a critical thinker. Articles and blog posts should provide sources with links; pay particular attention to whether a site has advertisers. If you notice advertisers' information being promoted more frequently than other news, it may be a sign that the site is not all that reputable.
Any "about" section on a good pharmaceutical or biotech site should clearly list any contributors, their qualifications to write on a given topic, and any ties they have to the industry they're writing about, past or present.
EvaluatePharma offers daily and weekly “Market Movers”—data analysis focusing on U.S. and international drug approvals, filings, R&D, licensing and partnering agreements. It features charts and news briefs gathered by 60 healthcare analysts, according to the company.
Like its print magazine, PharmaManufacturing.com provides articles on best manufacturing practices, regulatory compliance, process control/automation, new technologies, and capital spending and investment.
PharmaTimes.com is the digital version of the UK magazine of the same name. While the site focuses heavily on the National Health Service (NHS), the FDA's counterpart, the site also provides plenty of news about world pharmaceutical news and trends with ample coverage of multinational pharma.
