ImDev Banner

Every medicine in your pharmacy has a human story behind it. Real people doing real work and living real lives.

We all have romantic ideas about scientists working late into the evening or doctors dropping everything to answer a phone call about a patient. You can almost envision the moment when one of those researchers finally solves an intellectual puzzle and leaps into action. Their eyes go from an empty stare to an alert laser-like focus. They sit a bit taller and start to read frantically. I am sure you’ve seen those movies too.

But is it real? Is that how it really happens?

Have a Story to Tell?

We are always looking for people who have R&D experience to be guests on our show.  Do you have a good story that would help educate our listeners about the trials and tribulations of medical research?

Sponsor Improbable Developments

Improbable Developments was created to introduce the people of the Biopharma Industry to our listeners: patients, caregivers, and families.  Your financial support will allow us to continue producing Improbable Developments. Contact us to discuss sponsorship opportunities.
