Biofind-Home of the Biotech Rumor Mill

  • Rumors, chats
  • Nothing significant
I covered this site several years ago and thought I had covered it more recently, but my database says otherwise. Whatever the case, it’s time for an update. Biofind hosts one of the more interesting sites of information related to the biotech industry. Not content with simply reporting the news, Biofind hosts the interesting Rumor Mill, which, as its name implies, deals in the word on the street. If you’re looking for the poop on mergers, products, etc., this may be worth your while to check out. Other areas of the site include Jobs, an Event Database, a section called Biotech Innovations (puts together idea people with venture capitalists), and various news items and press releases. One new item I noted on the site was that it is for sale. If you’ve dreamed of owning your little piece of the Web, this could be your opportunity.
