Agency Statement:

Spectrum Science is an independent, integrated healthcare and scientific marketing, communications, media and strategic services firm focused on the pharmaceutical, biotech and broader life science industry. Purposefully structured to incentivize collaboration over silos, Spectrum’s strategy-first, interwoven model paired with an unmatched depth of scientific expertise ensures every client’s challenge is met with smart solutions that yield powerful results.

Following the receipt of strategic investment from Knox Lane to kick off 2023, Spectrum went on to increase its active client roster by 20%, bolstering work across all areas of expertise, including product and corporate communications, advertising, clinical trial recruitment and medical communications.

The acquisition of CrowdPharm and Hot Iron Health in late November 2023 solidified Spectrum’s growing work in promotional engagement and advertising, and formally established the company’s strategic advertising and consulting pillar. Their February 2024 acquisition of Continuum Clinical further amplified their patient recruitment capabilities, adding to the company’s strategic pillars of services - all designed to meet evolving client needs and demands of our industry. These pillars include:

• Scientific Communications, providing public relations, corporate communications, social media, issues management, advocacy engagement, paid media, earned media and medical communications

• Clinical Trial Recruitment, focused on patient engagement, recruitment and retention, paid media and social media

• Advertising & Consulting, providing advertising, brand marketing and strategic advisory services

• Spectrum Science Europe, based in London, providing integrated communications solutions, including public relations, corporate communications, patient advocacy engagement and more

Structuring their business in pillars reinforces their depth of expertise in these areas, helps clients to better understand what they offer and allows their staff to shine in their respective specialty, all while still benefiting from shared points of connectivity across strategy, creativity and innovation under their single P&L.
