Biotech Demystified set for June



UCSD will present its seventh Biotech Demystified from June 7-9.

This innovative program helps executives and decision-makers gain a practical understanding of the basic science powering the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries.

“The major thing that attendees gain is a context for understanding biotechnology as both a discipline and a business,” said biology professor Steve Wasserman, one of the program’s instruc-tors. “We give attendees a focused introduction to the science behind biotechnology, with examples drawn from the biotech industry. We help them see problems and approaches from a scientist’s point of view.”

Featured instructors include nine UCSD faculty members, covering science fundamentals, stem cell research, risk management in life sciences, pharmacogenomics and personalized medicine, and cancer and therapeutic approaches. It also includes hands-on exercises.
