› BioCentury History

BioCentury Publications, Inc. was founded in 1992 by David Flores, President & CEO, and Karen Bernstein, Ph.D., Chairman and Editor-in-Chief. Their goal was to create a "first-in-class" biotech-focused business journal that would provide independent, authoritative intelligence built on in-depth and accurate reporting. Their mission was — and remains — to identify and communicate the essential scientific, business, financial and public policy actions required to successfully bring progressive medical solutions to patients.
 
The first issue of BioCentury was launched in January 1993. The analysis-rich journal became the cornerstone of an enterprising media business that now touches decision makers and thought leaders in industry, government and the financial community around the world.
