My recent presentation at the “Biotechnology for Turkey” conference has been posted online. My central thesis was that the challenges faced by Turkey (and most any other location) are shared by many states within the United States. I’ve heard too many people opine for the seemingly easy start-up environment in the United States. The reality is that outside of the major hubs, biotechnology can be very hard to develop. It can even be difficult within the major hubs. So, instead of looking longingly at the strong position of leading regions in the U.S., why not look at the aggressive strategies being used by developing regions?

Check out my talk here.

I’ll be giving a talk on career development in biotechnology at UNC-Chapel Hill on Wednesday May 16th at 4pm in the Bioinformatics Building (ground floor auditorium), to be followed by a social/networking session at Top of the Hill (local brewery) at 5:30.

My talk will open with my meandering career path, (hopefully) provide some guidance for those at the start of their careers, and provide some perspective on the coming impacts of the globalization of biotechnology.

The talk is open to all. For more information, contact my host, Brant Hamel at the Carolina Student Biotechnology Network.
