Expert NetworkLife science experts from key parts of the pharmaceutical, biotech, and medical device industries craft original columns, exclusive to Life Science Connect audiences, on the most pressing issues. This seasoned group of key contributors who share their insights on Bioprocess Online, Cell & Gene, Clinical Leader, Med Device Online, Outsourced Pharma, and Pharmaceutical Online make up The Expert Network.

Experts expand topical coverage areas, imparting their expertise and hard-earned, first-hand best practices across life science product development and commercialization — from discovery, R&D, and clinical trials to outsourcing, regulatory, and market access. However, they do much more than simply create and share content. Experts engage directly with Life Science Connect readers, sharing ideas and exchanging opinions, serving as a critical link between readers and the industry at large.
