Adopting a unique approach, this novel textbook integrates science and business for an inside view on the biotech industry. Peering behind the scenes, it provides a thorough analysis of the foundations of the present day industry for students and professionals alike: its history, its tools and processes, its markets and products. The author, himself a close witness of the emergence of modern biotechnology from its very beginnings in the 1980s, clearly separates facts from fiction, looking behind the exaggerated claims made by start-up companies trying to attract investors. He includes a case study of a paradigmatic industry/academic joint venture, while the appendix even features interviews with opinion leaders from the biotech industry conducted specifically for this book. Essential reading for every student and junior researcher looking for a career in the biotech sector.
