Overview

Scientists know science; businesspeople know business. This book explains both. As biotechnology changes paradigms in medicine, agriculture, and industrial processes, there is a pressing need for cross-trained individuals capable of developing new innovations and bringing them to market. Building Biotechnology helps readers start and manage biotechnology companies and understand the business of biotechnology. This acclaimed book describes the convergence of scientific, political, regulatory, and commercial factors that drive the biotechnology industry and define its scope. In addition to its popularity among business professionals and scientists seeking to apply their skills to biotechnology, Building Biotechnology has also been adopted as a course text in dozens of advanced biotechnology programs including MBA programs at UC Irvine, Tepper, and Boston University; the Johns Hopkins biotechnology MS/MBA program; NIH Office of Technology Transfer; extension programs at Berkeley and UCSF; and international programs at the Karolinska Institute, Macquarie University, and Schulich School of Business. This third edition significantly expands upon the foundation laid by the first two, updating case law and business models in this dynamic industry and adding significantly more case studies, informative figures and tables. Most importantly, Building Biotechnology enables seasoned business professionals and entrepreneurial scientists alike to understand the drivers of biotechnology businesses and apply their established skills for commercial success. What makes Building Biotechnology different? Building Biotechnology builds a robust foundation by providing a comprehensive fundamentals-based overview of the broad variety of elements influencing the commercialization of biotechnology. Expanding on this foundation to ensure a practical appreciation of operational issues in the biotechnology industry, Building Biotechnology adds real-world examples
