Description

The Intro to Biotech course is divided into two parts: Intro to Business and Intro to Science. We provide a significant discount when individuals take the course as a package. While you can choose to attend one or the other, we highly recommend taking the course as a package to learn a more in-depth understanding of the biotech world.

Intro to Science explore considerations that drive company strategies. Students will be provided with foundational information about the biopharma industry and regulation via instruction, storytelling, and small group discussions. Industry ethics will be discussed, with emphasis on historical precedents. The course touches on topics such as market share, phases of development, patient population, safety profile, and more.
