EP Vantage Wins Commentator of the Year Award at European Mediscience Awards 2011

LONDON, June 24, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --


EP Vantage, part of EvaluatePharma, was presented with the coveted Commentator of the Year Award at the European Mediscience Awards, sponsored by Matrix, on June 22, 2011.

The award, which honours clear and concise commentary in the pharma and biotech sector, can be given to analysts, journalists, columnists, research houses or specialist websites dedicated to providing sharp, perceptive and penetrating commentary.

The EP Vantage team - Lisa Urquhart, Amy Brown, Christian Glennie and Jonathan Gardner - beat a strong field that included analysts and fellow journalists to claim the prize.

Speaking about the achievement Jonathan de Pass, chief executive of EvaluatePharma, said: "I'm thrilled that the EP Vantage team have won the European Mediscience 2011 Commentator of the Year award.

The life-science industry is well served for commentary by several long-established publications and by many securities analysts so this is all the more an incredible achievement given that EP Vantage has been going for less than four years. After twice being runners-up for this award, this is well-deserved recognition for the team."
