Francesca Bruce has been writing news and analysis about all things affecting the pharmaceutical industry since 2008. She has paid special attention to policy and regulatory developments but particularly likes to write about market access and how medicines may  - or may not  -  make it to patients. She generally writes about Europe, but really enjoys uncovering news from further corners of the globe, especially Latin America and the Middle East.
