Welcome to Medical Science Liaison Institute!
Medical Science Liaison Institute Knowledge Library contains more than a thousand pages’ worth of articles, books, and research reports created by Jane Chin for the MSL Institute through the past decade, now available to the medical science liaison profession and the public. The library is organized for MSL Executives, current MSLs, and aspiring medical science liaisons. Library content is available either as text or image file of the original PDFs. Pharmaceutical/MSL executives may hire Jane Chin for consulting and advisory. I continue to add to the library but as you can imagine, it’s a big job to root through gigabytes of files (and versions thereof)! JC
