2017 Editorial Focus

Now in its 17th year, DDW is the only truly global business review of all aspects of drug discovery and development and has firmly established itself as a highly respected and ‘must read’ journal within the discovery and development arena. DDW is renowned for voicing the opinions of some of the Industry’s leading luminaries and has become a recognised ‘platform’ for ‘Industry Gurus’ to discuss and encourage debate on some of the more challenging issues surrounding the technological, strategic and business facets of the pharma and biopharmaceutical industry. DDW has always adhered to the maxim... ‘Turning science into business’.

Editorial is always sourced on DDW's well known maxim of turning science into business. We commission articles from Pharma, Academia and the Technology Community that can talk candidly about the commercial potency of implementing new technologies and the impact these ultimately will have in discovering new drugs. We strive to keep the editorial balanced and objective and appeal to both camps, the scientist and, of course, the business leaders within the Pharma, Biotech and Academic Institutions.
