Guy Furness is an independent publisher specialising in the global drug delivery industry.
Prior to launching ONdrugDelivery in 2004, he worked as a freelance drug delivery journalist and, before that, he set-up and was Editor of a global drug delivery industry sister newsletter to Scrip World Pharmaceutical News (now Informa Pharma Intelligence).
Mr Furness has written for leading industry magazines and journals, business reports and national newspapers, including The Times newspaper (UK). He has also occasionally written on behalf of industry, including for leading US and European drug delivery and related companies.
It was during his time as a freelance drug delivery writer that Mr Furness recognised the pressing need (at that time unmet) for a niche industry information and intelligence provider able to concentrate not merely on the drug delivery industry as a whole, but to focus right down into specific topics within the field of drug delivery. This is why ONdrugDelivery Magazine was created.
Mr Furness advises several event organisers on pertinent programme content and has himself spoken on drug delivery at international pharmaceutical conferences. He began his career as a member of the editorial team of the pharmaceutical R&D products database, Pharmaprojects (owned by Informa PLC). He graduated from the University of Bath (UK) in 1998 with a BSc (Hons) in Natural Sciences.
