The accolade for "Mediscience Commentator of the Year" was sponsored by College Hill Life Sciences; this is the 4th year that we have been sponsors of the event as a whole.  This award is a recent addition to the event, since 2009, and can be awarded to an analyst, a journalist, a columnist, a research house, a specialist website or a team that is dedicated to providing sharp, perceptive and penetrating commentary about the sector.  BioCentury has won this award before in 2010, and other past winners include the team at EP Vantage and The Times.

Now in its 19th year, BioCentury Publications, Inc. is internationally recognized as the leading provider of value-added information, analysis and data for biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies, investors, academia and government on the strategic issues essential to the formation, development and sustainability of life science ventures.  It employs a fully integrated multimedia platform — including publications, video, online data solutions and conferences — to provide its audience with authoritative and up-to-date intelligence about corporate strategy, partnering, emerging technology, clinical data, public policy and the financial markets.  The BioCentury team comprises industry-recognized business and science editors and writers.

After presenting the award, Dr Lynne Trowbridge, Partner, College Hill Life Sciences, said:
"BioCentury is essential reading to multiple audiences in the life sciences sector – from the senior management and Boards of pharma and biotech companies, to the institutions that invest in them and the analysts and other media that write about them.  We are delighted that BioCentury has won the award this year.”
