Social Media for Drug Discovery

Scientist on December 19, 2009

We began this blog to start a discussion about new models for drug discovery, and we’re trying to engage you and other bloggers to participate in the discussion.

Blogs for Drug Discovery Researchers

We thought it would be helpful for us to provide some links and shortcuts for you to help you keep in touch with drug discovery blogs and news.

Blog Description Link
In the Pipeline Derek Lowe, Vertex employee, blogs about drug discovery from a chemist’s point of view. This is likely the most popular blog and it has a great list of others as well.
Pharma Strategy Blog Sally Church, who led the marketing team for Gleevec, talks about oncology as well as issues regarding patients and doctors, which I think drug discovery researchers should be mindful of.
Drug Discovery Opinion Reviews of literature from a group of medicinal chemists.
The In Vivo Blog Nice mix of pharma R&D, business development, marketing commentary from several authors.

Most of the blogs below have a blogroll to help you find other sources, and we encourage you to learn about using RSS feeds to get information whenever they are updated (learn more about RSS feeds and readers here).
