WASHINGTON, March 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Logos Press announces two new books featuring international best practices in biotechnology business development and biotechnology education. These new books respectively serve pressing needs to empower industry leaders operating in the dynamic biotechnology industry, and help to address the global shortage of skilled biotechnology workers.
Best Practices in Biotechnology Business Development (ISBN: 978-09734676- 0-4) 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.
Best Practices in Biotechnology Education (ISBN: 978-09734676-7-3) fills a vital need in biotechnology education. 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.
These books complement Logos Press' recent title, Building Biotechnology (ISBN: 978-09734676-3-5), which helps readers 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. In addition to its popularity among business professionals and scientists seeking to apply their skills to biotechnology, Building Biotechnology has also been adopted as a course text in dozens of advanced biotechnology programs.
