Our mission is to provide an overview of biobusiness to life-science and business professionals and students through online education.

Even if you have some experience in biotechnology, much of our material is not easily acquired in your day-to-day work.

Our online topic books focus on biotechnology and modern drug discovery and development.

Medicine is profoundly influenced by molecular biology and its applied partner biotechnology, which permeate almost every aspect of modern medicine from understanding disease to aiding drug discovery and development. Even the discovery and development of small organic-molecule drugs, the traditional fare of the large pharmaceutical companies, is guided by molecular biology and biotechnology, which we call the new biology. While the focus is drug discovery and development, many of the technical, business and financial principles apply to other areas of biotechnology as well. These areas include medical devices, animal and plant agriculture, chemical manufacture, and bioenergy. When does discovery end and development begin?

The nine Topic Books address modern drug discovery and development. They are designed to provide both a basic and more advanced understanding of big pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies’ activities and strategies. In this way, you will gain a better understanding of your role in your company’s business. Even if you have some experience in biotechnology, much of our material is not easily acquired in your day-to-day work.

Or if you are a student or working in an academic laboratory, the Topic Books will provide basic knowledge and information to prepare you for a career in industry. They will also give you an understanding of areas outside academic research (e.g., patent law, health-care policy, finances) that can launch you on a new career path. Professionals in areas that require a life-science background find challenges and fulfillment in careers peripheral to basic research.

Over half of all biotechnology companies are involved in medicine. Today, medicine is profoundly influenced by molecular biology and its applied partner biotechnology, which we call the “new biology.”  The new biology permeates almost every aspect of modern medicine from understanding disease to aiding drug discovery and development, even including small organic-molecule drugs, the traditional fare of the large pharmaceutical companies.

While the main focus of the Topic Books is to relate the many aspects of drug discovery and development to their business significance, many of the technical, business, economic, market research, and financial principles apply to other biobusiness areas as well. These areas include medical devices, animal and plant agriculture, chemical manufacture, and bioenergy.
