Instructor Biography

The Biotech Group, Providing biotech training to non-scientists

The Biotech Group is composed of scientists and business professionals. Its goal is to provide focused biotech training to non-scientists. We started offering our programs because we were frustrated with the training options out there. Most of them were either traditional university programs or rigid certificate programs. We wanted to provide courses to people who needed a focused program so they can apply their learnings immediately.
