As the pharma industry moves toward more outsourcing and virtual business structures, a new online exchange has emerged as a popular platform for life science transactions. has been called by Atul Butte, bioinformatics professor at Stanford, a Home Depot for science. In today's show we talk with the co-founder and CEO of Assay Depot, Kevin Lustig. Originally Kevin and his colleague created the site to complement what was going to be a new CRO in San Diego. Soon they realized the site itself, with features borrowed from Amazon, Kayak, and Google, offered a greater business opportunity than another CRO. Kevin talks about the platform and its various features and at large about new trends in pharma.
