DDNEWS is an international news organization that reports on trends and developments that impact the business of drug discovery. We do this using several news vehicles: our monthly print publication and international PDF; a twice-monthly e-newsletter; a 24-7 website; and an e-New Product Showcase.
Our features and departments, produced by a team of seasoned journalists, provide you with the latest news involving global partnerships and business deals; tools and technology; diagnostics development; news in the growing field of “’omics;” research and development; the ever-expanding world of contract research services and outsourcing; government-related issues; new products; market trends; people and events; and much more.
In the recent past, much of our coverage has involved cancer research efforts in some way. In response to this trend, in September 2011, we launched DDNEWS Cancer Research News, your gateway to the latest oncology news and resources. This new resource will showcase all of our cancer-related coverage, feature some of the industry’s oncology leaders and serve as a bridge between you and the cancer community.
