"Writing for Biotech and Pharma Professionals"
Course Description

Professionals in biotech, drug development, and life sciences do important work—and have important results to relay, whether to the FDA, the public, or their colleagues. Their writing needs to reflect their credibility while conveying the results of their research clearly. We’ve been designing and teaching writing workshops for these professionals for over 30 years, including at companies such as Novartis, Pfizer, and Celgene. Contact us for more information regarding biotech and pharma writing workshops.
