BioPharm Insight, Infinata, Inc.’s cornerstone biopharma intelligence solution, announces two new additions to its prestigious investigative journalist team to expand coverage in the global healthcare and medical device sectors. BioPharm Insight is an independent intelligence subscription service based in New York City, London and Hong Kong. The editorial team focuses on breaking news 6-12 months in advance of market-moving events in the healthcare industry, through interviews with CEOs, key opinion leaders, researchers, clinicians, industry sources and more.

Niccola Perez joins the team as a healthcare reporter primarily covering drug development.

Ms. Perez has also worked with the Medical Unit at CNN, conducted laboratory research at Institut Pasteur in Paris, and served as an academic associate on several ongoing clinical studies at St. Luke's-Roosevelt Hospital in New York. Additional experience includes qualitative research at a regional office of the World Health Organization in El Salvador and industry R&D with the Adhesives Division of 3M in Northern France.
Kotaro Yoshida joins BioPharm Insight as a dedicated medical device reporter.
