Elsevier Drug Discovery & Development Survey
Innovation and Performance: What’s data got to do with it?

With increasing drug price pressures and failure of the one-drug-fits-all model, pharmaceutical R&D is striving to develop more targeted drugs.

Commercial success hinges upon realizing the potential of data-driven innovation and development.

How are industry leaders driving business performance amidst big data? What are the leading practices for harnessing data to create innovative and new drugs and treatments? What are the common challenges and bottlenecks?

Help us deliver a comprehensive report by participating in a survey on current drug discovery and development practices. We’re exploring the topics of innovation, commercial performance, and data-driven drug development amongst industry R&D and drug discovery departments.

Participants of the survey will receive a free copy of key findings from the survey in June 2017. The survey should take approximately 15 minutes to complete.

All survey responses are anonymous so that responses are not associated with specific company names.

To receive the free report, you must complete the survey and be a professional with job responsibilities related to drug discovery and development in a pharmaceutical or biotech Company. A valid work email is required to receive the report.
