Biotechnology

Yali Friedman, Ph.D., Biotech U

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. Biotech U helps you understand the business of biotechnology, how to start and manage biotechnology companies, and how to better service the needs of biotechnology companies.

Biotech U goes beyond simple 'science for non-scientists' or 'mini MBA' offerings, and describes the convergence of scientific, political, regulatory, and commercial factors that drive the biotechnology industry and define its scope.

Biotech U 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., chief editor of the Journal of Commercial Biotechnology and a former instructor in biotechnology management at the National Institutes of Health.
