Ever wonder how a great invention or discovery make its way to become a life saving medicine or device? Check out a biotechnology entrepreneurship and commercialization course for bioscience and biomedical engineering students:
TRGN 543: Biotechnology Entrepreneurship and Commercialization (2.0 units) Section 70057. Thursday 10 – 11:50 am
This course examines the entrepreneurial process in biotechnology, including: industry overview, idea generation, business plan formulation, intellectual property protection, funding, personnel management, and regulatory body interaction. The course is specifically designed for bioscience and biomedical engineering students. No business background is required. This is suitable for students who are interested in careers outside of straight academic research, or those who are curious to understand “bench to bedside” process.
We are very excited to recruit Dr. Ron King (https://dtg.usc.edu/site/index.php/faculty/king/) to teach the class. In addition to leading classes with his own insight gained from decades of involvement in the biotech and pharma industry, Dr. King also planned to lead field trips and to invite industry experts to share their expertise in several networking events for enrolled students.
For more information about this course, please contact Carol Lin (firstname.lastname@example.org). D-clearance not required.
