Pharma Strategy Blog conference newsletter is finally here!

By popular request, we are now rolling out the PSB conference newsletter.

This will be an occasional event that will be sent out after some scientific meetings we’ve attended.  They will contain snippets and summaries of data or new drug classes that we found interesting and worth highlighting and will be an adjunct to the blog, so you won’t get the same things twice icon smile Pharma Strategy Blog conference newsletter is finally here!

The first one will roll out by the end of this week and cover last week’s meeting from AACR on colorectal cancer biology.

On chotchkes and scientific data in oncology

Getting back to the blogging groove after 3 weeks on the road at successive conferences (AUA, ASCO and EHA) is a bit of a shock, so the first post will be short and pithy.

AUA will be remembered for incredibly unsocial and early 6am education session starts.  No thanks, with three meetings in a row stamina trumps insanity by a long shot.  At ASCO, the Chicago venue is sprawling with long walks between sessions that appear to have no theme or cohesion around them and of course, the Press Room is way out in left field over the walkway no matter where you need to go.  The S406 Vista Room was particularly bad and became notorious for the #blisterwalk on Twitter.  Never again will I complain about switching between Halls A and F at Orlando, that's a piece of cake by comparison!

Aggregating the EHA 2010 tweets

After the success of the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Twitter aggregation, with over 250 readers over the course of the weekend, I thought it would be fun to repeat the experiment for the European Hematology Association (EHA) meeting in Barcelona this weekend.  The tweet volume is likely to be significantly less tough, with fewer people tweeting from the event.

Most of the topics I'm interested in will be on leukemias, lymphomas and myeloma, so if you are interested in these cancers, you can follow the feed below.  I've aggregated two hashtags, #EHA10 and #EHA2010.
