    A Field Research on the Relationship Between Strategic Decision-Making Speed and Innovation Performance in the Case of Iran Drug Industry

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Masihkhah, Hadi (Author) ; Kermanshah, Ali (Supervisor) ; Sharbatoghli, Ahmad (Supervisor)
    Purpose – This study aims to: identify organizational and environmental factors affecting strategic decision-making speed; examine the relationship between those factors and innovation performance; and clarify the relationship between strategic decision-making speed and innovation performance. Design/methodology/approach – A survey was conducted on more than 50 large-scale firms operating in the drug industry in Iran, in summer 2009. Findings – The research findings related to the linkage between participation and strategic decision-making speed indicate that extensive participation accelerates the pace of decision making. Research limitations/implications – This survey was conducted on CEOs... 

    Fundamentals and stock return in pharmaceutical companies: A panel data model of Iranian industry

    , Article Iranian Journal of Pharmaceutical Sciences ; Vol. 9, issue. 1 , 2014 , p. 55-60 Kebriaee-Zadeh, A ; Zartab, S ; Fatemi, S. F ; Radmanesh, R ; Sharif University of Technology
    Stock return is usually considered to be affected by firm's financial ratios as well as economic variables. Fundamental method assume that stock returns is not solely related to the stock market. Most result come from the company condition, industry situation and whole economy. In this paper, this relationship between stock return and fundamentals is studied using the data for 22 pharmaceutical companies in Tehran Stock Exchange over a 7 year period, and effective factors on stock return are investigated. Because of our data natural we used panel data model from econometric methods. The results show that 80 pecent of change in stock return can be explained with 9 fundamental variables... 

    Multi-walled carbon nanotubes with immobilised cobalt nanoparticle for modification of glassy carbon electrode: Application to sensitive voltammetric determination of thioridazine

    , Article Biosensors and Bioelectronics ; Volume 24, Issue 11 , 2009 , Pages 3235-3241 ; 09565663 (ISSN) Shahrokhian, S ; Ghalkhani, M ; Adeli, M ; Amini, M. K ; Sharif University of Technology
    Multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) were immobilised with cobalt nanoparticles and analyzed by transmission electron microscopy. This modification procedure substantially improved colloidal dispersion of the immobilised MWCNTs in water and organic solvents, yielding uniform and stable thin films for modification of the glassy carbon electrode surface. The modified electrode showed an efficient catalytic role for the electrochemical oxidation of thioridazine (TR), leading to remarkable decrease in its oxidation overpotential of approximately 100 mV and enhancement of the kinetics of the electrode reaction, which can be confirmed by increasing in the peak current and sharpness of the peak....
