GxP Perspectives: Summer Reading


GxP Summer Reading

Summer Reading for GxP Professionals

GxP Perspectives firmly believes that summertime means more vacations, less work, and some different recommendations for your reading list. I am actually going to NOT be traveling for the entire month of August. I have weeds to pull, a fence to paint (can Tom Sawyer give me a call), Some hiking to do, and a blog to keep up (to a certain degree). Like most of you, I also enjoy reading. So here are some of my favorite sites for your perusal. Some are industry, some are not. All of them are good. I have really been enjoying the Harvard Business Review “Management Tip of the Day.” If you have other suggestions, please let us know.

UPDATE: Dr. Hamburg’s Op/Ed article printed in the Wall Street Journal.

7 August Update: Not to be missed is the Essex IRB Warning Letter. Earlier this year FDA warned of a fictitious submission to central IRBs. Essex took the bait and approved the fictitious submission.

Harvard Business Review Management Tips is a daily, very brief, “tip of the day.” I find them useful, well-written, and usually making sense. They have many products that they would like to sell you.

What I watched Last Night is a periodic, non-commercial blog about movies. No, not current Hollywood fare, but movies that this acclaimed video maker and film critic actually enjoys. It’s summertime and what better season to watch a movie.

MedCity News A weekly compilation of articles on this commercial website.

AbsoluteArts Because we all need some art in our life.

GCP works The twitter account of GCP Professional Tina Avanzato Chiodo.

NYRblog The blog of the NY Review of Books. If I could only subscribe to one print journal it would be the New York Review of Books.

PharmTech Talk is the blog of Pharmaceutical Technology. All play and no work…

Guardian.co.uk from London. The Guardian provides a different news perspective for readers from the U.S. who can see what others think of us. I like the column from Hadley Freeman on the ratings downgrade. The Guardian has a lot of very good writers.

Science 2.0 Now featuring “Decapitation and the Wave of Death” (now how cool is that?)

Value Added Connects: This blog from India discusses the inspections of CROs by the DCGI (Drugs Controller General of India). A good way to learn more about clinical trials in India.
