Hear from our 2016 Hive participants

"Access to Elsevier R&D Solutions’ suite of programs allows us to move our project forward. The Hive also gives handson training of technologies that will help us make better informed decisions on lead compound selections, and will increase our productivity by reducing the time we spend searching for relevant and trustworthy data for our research." Claudia Bøen, CEO, Arctic Pharma
"In order to give ourselves the best leg up against our competitors and to give ourselves the best level of equivalence with the people who are going to be important to help us partner and go forward as a company in terms of laterstage clinical trial, we have to know what everybody else knows. The only way to do that is to have access to a good suite of tools like the Elsevier products in order to do that." Ross Bersot, CEO, Reset Therapeutics
"A big R&D challenge for a small company developing a platform technology that can be broadly applied across multiple disease areas is the ability to rapidly get up to speed on different disease areas and other technical areas critical toward improving the technology. This includes understanding the science and biology as well as the IP, clinical, and commercial landscapes. But that’s what is great about being a part of the The Hive. Hive participation has been an amazing resource in support of our effort to address this challenge." Tom Wickham, Vice President Research and Development at Rubius Therapeutics
"The fact that we have rapid access to Elsevier journals and can use Reaxys to look for reaction conditions, if we have an idea in our 10 o’clock meeting, we may have the chemistry working by that same afternoon." Bruce Clapham, Director of Medicinal Chemistry, Reset Therapeutics
