Does the Pharmaceutical Industry Also Need to Unlearn?

Posted in Life Science/Pharmaceutical


Last month, I had a post discussing the health care industry’s need to “unlearn.” They are not, however, the only industry which might benefit from unlearning. I recently came across this article discussing how targeting “gut bugs” could revolutionize the development of future drugs.

I am not enough of an expert in the field to know for certain if the strategy will work, but I do know that innovative new strategies often come out of “left field’ and tend to be dismissed by more “established” experts in the early stages of their development.

At a minimum, if you are in the pharmaceutical industry, the idea deserves serious consideration. Who knows it might even help you “jump the curve.”
