Move over Silicon Valley, there is a new biotech hotspot looking to attract the best and brightest—and it’s not in the US. Taiwan is beginning to attract technology and healthcare talent from inside and outside the region, as the small island nation is quickly becoming home to innovative healthcare care startups, such as Taiwan Liposome Company (TLC). “It’s trying to be a much more knowledge-based type of economy,” says George Yeh, president of TLC, a specialty biopharma based in Taipei, Taiwan.
Amazon just announced a new program that would allow delivery people into a person’s house. While this may help solve the problem of items being stolen off people’s porches and could make delivery of items that require signatures—such as iPhones— easier, it may also be another piece to Amazon’s pharma puzzle.
Former critical care nurse Cynthia Schwalm, now executive vice president and president of North American commercial operations for Ipsen, shares her unique perspective on the pharma industry, her formula for successful team building internally, and the importance today of stepping out of the C-suite and into the world of the patient To say that Cynthia Schwalm’s ascension to the top wasn’t exactly traditional wouldn’t be too far of a stretch.
When you're interviewing an executive about #pharma reputation & make a perfect Eli Manning comparison that he agreed with/loved, but explain you can't use it bc your boss is an Eagles fan. 🤣 @trialsonline
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
