This course presumes no former training in business, science, or law.
Learn the business of biotechnology, how to start and manage biotechnology companies, and how to better service the needs of biotechnology companies.
Going beyond simple 'science for non-scientists' or 'mini MBA' offerings, this course describes the convergence of scientific, political, regulatory, and commercial factors that drive the biotechnology industry and define its scope.
Topics covered include:
The development of biotechnology
An accessible introduction to the science of biotechnology
Laws, Regulations, and Policy
The Business of Biotechnology
This course is based on the leading business-of-biotechnology text, "Building Biotechnology," which has been adopted by more than 50 schools, and is taught by Yali Friedman, Ph.D., publisher of the Journal of Commercial Biotechnology and a former instructor of biotechnology management at the National Institutes of Health.
I hope you enjoy this course as much as I did putting it together.
