An interesting thread on the topic of educational paths to enter the biotechnology industry has popped up in the Journal of Commercial Biotechnology Linkedin group. Are you intrigued? Do you have any guidance? Hop over and join the discussion.

Check out the Journal of Commercial Biotechnology and my Biotechnology Books for more information on the business of biotechnology.

I’m giving a talk at Pittcon on biotechnology training this spring. As many readers know, I have been very active in biotechnology education through my books and the classes I teach. So, I’ve got a strong sense of the supply-side of biotechnology education and training, and the academic side of biotechnology education, but would like some more perspective on the industry side of biotechnology education and training.

So, I’d like to post an open question:

How do you train your new biotechnology employees?

I want to learn more about the training systems used to bring new hires, with either scientific or business backgrounds, up to speed on the business of biotechnology. What are the methods and tools you use? You may post your response in the comments below, or if you’d rather be off the record, feel free to contact me directly.
