Let’s face it – industry publications can sometimes make for dreary reading. It’s either time-pressured journalists replaying a press release or smug industry professionals dishing out tired marketing messages.
But there’s a lot of great journalism around health, medicine and biotechnology. Here are a few of my favourites:
Doctors writing for doctors. Minimal editorial agenda, and transparency about industry connections.
Pharma journalism with an MBA mindset. Broad coverage across the industry, and a constant focus on the commercial reality. One of the few groups not to have swallowed the “patient centricity” pill.
Longform, intelligent journalism on the “frontiers of health”.
A few of my favourites:
- Press releases stink. Here’s why that matters
- The most feared man in biotech: journalist Adam Feuerstein
- How bacteria form cities in your mouth
- The man behind the Wellcome Trust
