Lucie Ellis, based in the UK, joined the SCRIP Intelligence team in 2012. In her current position as a Creative Content Reporter, she is focused on introducing innovative and imaginative ways to display content on the web and routinely annoys SCRIP’s technology and design teams by thinking too far outside of the box. As a reporter covering the pharma and biotech world, Lucie understandably spends a lot of her time writing about drugs and money or Googling abbreviations. However she has a particular interest in employment trends, social and digital media use by industry, patient-centricity, big data, and clinical research in the metabolic and CNS fields. Lucie enjoys traveling and can often be seen out and about at industry events across the globe as SCRIP’s roving reporter.
