Jonathan Gardner grew up on a farm in Illinois but decided he preferred ink stains to dirt under his fingernails. Jon comes to BioPharma Dive after stints in the Washington bureau of Modern Healthcare, Health Affairs journal and EP Vantage/Vantage in London. When he is not busy reporting on the biotech sector, Jon can be found and occasionally lost running in the mountains near his Central Virginia home. He prefers his own risotto to anything he's ever had in a restaurant.
