Posting has been light lately — I’ve been working hard on revising Building Biotechnology.
Off to the NIH next week to give my talk on biotechnology entrepreneurship.
Upcoming talk at Johns Hopkins Carey School of Business on a multifaceted dissection of the biotechnology industry.
Two new biotechnology books:
I’m proud to announce two new books featuring international best practices in biotechnology business development and biotechnology education. These new books respectively empower industry leaders operating in the dynamic biotechnology industry, and help address the global shortage of skilled biotechnology workers.
First Edition, March 2008
Perfect Bound, 342 pages, US$74.95
|Best Practices in Biotechnology Education|
22 International Best Practices in K-12, College, Certificate, Master’s, Doctoral, MBA, Distance Education Programs and Student Groups
This international compilation is directed at faculty and program directors seeking to start or expand biotechnology education programs; policy makers and economic developers seeking to meet workforce needs; and, students, scientists, and business professionals looking to enter the biotechnology industry or upgrade their existing skills. The included cases describe a wide variety of international programs from high-school through Ph.D. levels, and student clubs. Some programs are in their first years whereas others are quite mature and have diversified to offer myriad degree and certificate programs.
First Edition, March 2008

|Best Practices in Biotechnology Business Development|
Valuation, Licensing, Cash Flow, Pharmacoeconomics, Market Selection, Communication, and Intellectual Property
Best Practices in Biotechnology Business Development provides a framework to understand critical issues in biotechnology business development. Experts from a wide range of disciplines have contributed best practices based on their experiences and expertise, enabling biotechnology entrepreneurs, senior managers, directors, and officers to develop a better understanding of the key elements in these operations, empowering them to better manage their implementation.
|These books complement my recent title, Building Biotechnology:|
Second Edition, August 2006
Hardcover, 320 pages, US$54.95
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.
