Creating a New Pharma R&D Ecosystem

Celebration

Pioneering Pharma of the Future℠ .

Do you feel that? It’s the industry changing. And no one has a finger on the pulse of drug development like our fearless leader Ted Grasela. So we thought, hey, let’s give him an outlet to share his wisdom. And so the Cognigen blog was born. Check back here often for insightful articles, unique views on industry trends, and a whole lot more on the evolution of this critical field.
