Heroes of Medicine Making

When we talk about bringing drugs to market, the focus is usually on cost. It’s common knowledge that drug development cost in excess of $2 billion, but how many people does it take? There will be researchers, formulators, manufacturing technicians, marketers, business leaders and more. And perhaps there will also be people outside of the company who contribute indirectly – perhaps it was a keynote speech or a research paper from another scientist that originally triggered the spark of inspiration leading to the successful development of a new medicine.

The Medicine Maker has always strived to celebrate the people and processes that bring new medicines to market and in our upcoming April 2016 issue the focus will truly be on people as the Power List makes its much anticipated return.

Avid readers of The Medicine Maker will no doubt remember our 2015 Power List; the list compiles the top 100 most prominent and inspirational individuals involved in medicine making – and the most exciting part of the Power List is that it’s up to you, the readers, to decide who will be considered for the list. Nominations have been open for some time already, but the deadline is now fast approaching – 8 March.

Last year, many of you nominated business leaders to appear on the Power List (if you’d like a reminder of the 2015 list then you’ll find it here), but are there some important unsung heroes that we missed last year? Perhaps a valued colleague, or a brilliant scientist that you have previously collaborated with? In the past several weeks, I have received many phonecalls to ask who is eligible to be included in the Power List. The Power List is not just for those who have climbed the corporate ladder, but about celebrating the entire field and process of medicine making, from small molecule to biologic and precision medicines. Anyone who has a part to play is eligible, including academics, technicians, regulators, consultants, vendors, philanthropists – it’s up to you to decide! Nominations can come from any country and can relate to any discipline. You can even nominate yourself if you wish.

If you’d like to make a nomination, it’s quick and easy. Just tell me the name(s) and company/institution(s) of your nominees and, briefly, the reason why. You can either email me directly or use our online nomination form, where you can nominate anonymously if you prefer. All nominations will be passed to our judging panel – and the final 100 will be revealed in our April issue.
