'A Condense View of the Drug Discovery Process', by David Tung. it's a secret.

Hush now. This is all a secret. Shhhhhh  Just answer David's questions on the Skeptics thread.

"I was trained as an engineer before I entered the pharmaceutical industry.  So I have looked at the drug industry as an outsider at one time. Then I worked as a drug discovery scientist for 17 years.  During my time as a scientist, I have worked for both small biotechs and big pharmas.  So I have perspective on this industry as an outsider and an insider.  I can share my experience and impression from both sides of the coin.".

    Here is a free website that scientists around the world use for tracking scientific findings:

    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed

    It is run by the NIH and the Library of Congress, but is completely independent of the FDA or the pharma industry. This will give you access to the original scientific articles in peer reviewed journals. But please be aware that some journals are not as reputable as others. This is a great place to double check information you find on Google.

    Excellent questions, Doug! I will definitely cover the placebo effect. Unfortunately, it is alive and well in the pharma world. I will share my first hand experience on the placebo effect with the group.

    David, I am looking forward to your talk. Reading the book "Bad Science" and would be interested in your thoughts on the Placebo effect. Also, I am interested in how pharmacogenetics can help find the people that would most benefit from a drug and those it would harm. There have been drugs that have significantly help people but we live in a prescription drug culture that can cause great harm.

    If you guys have any 'conspiracy theories' about the drug industry that you would like me to address, please send them to me. I do not have all the answers, but I will try my best to dispel them as myths or confirm them as facts. I will also add a few more for us to ponder.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
