Building Biotechnology: Starting, Managing, And Understanding Biotechnology Companies by Yali Friedman



Friedman's 'Building Biotechnology' provides a good holistic introduction to the business of biotech. It is concisely written in layman's terms, with short & sweet case studies through out the book. What I find weak about the book is its limited coverage on the important topic of biotech valuation (readers who are interested in that topic can check out Peter Boer's 'Technology Valuation Solutions', or Richard Razgaitis's 'Valuation and Pricing of Technology-based Intellectual Property'). Through this book, I learned that because of biotechnology, a diabetic is able to use insulin that is made without having to slaughter 50 pigs each year for that one person. The process of biotechnology has also allowed oil spills to be cleaned up using by bacteria that was created for this purpose. I found this to be very interesting.

Building Biotechnology: Starting, Managing, and Understanding Biotechnology Companies. Director Programa Doctorado en Biotecnología Instituto de Biología. Pontificia Universidad Católica de Valparaíso Chile. Building Biotechnology by Yali Friedman. From the title on, in well-structured four main sections, the reader is smoothly driven in a dynamic and convincing way to understand the interactions of the scientific aspects of biotechnology with legal, political, regulatory and even ethical approaches required to make biotechnology a commercial success.

This is the case for Building Biotechnology by Yali Friedman. Notwithstanding, one of the key concept resulting from reading the book is that of optimism. Biotechnology has destroyed paradigms, created new ones and reborn others, always with a positive slope, selling the feeling that we are just at the beginning of a never-ending process. Yali Friedman is an enthusiast. Through the different sections of his book he speeds up to convince the reader that getting into Biotechnology is a must.

An informative book that is helpful for prospective entrepreneurials who want to learn about the process of starting a biotech company is written by Yali Friedman, Ph. entitled, "Building Biotechnology: Starting, Managing, and Understanding Biotechnology Companies". in biochemistry from Buffalo University and teaches MBA-level classes on the business of biotechnology.

This book by an HBS professor is the closest to a textbook for the course. While there will be no formal reading assignments from the book, I strongly recommend your reading it from cover to cover. Her-2: The Making of Herceptin, a Revolutionary Treatment for Breast Cancer. Building Biotechnology: Starting, Managing, and Understanding Biotechnology Companies. thinkBiotech LLC (2004). The Business of Healthcare Innovation.

Managing Biotechnology Overview Starting Up Managing R&D Dealing with Failure. His first book, Building Biotechnology, is used as a course text in dozens of biotechnology programs. His other books include Best Practices in Biotechnology Education and Best Practices in Biotechnology Business Development

Biotechnology inventions, products, and resource needs are changing paradigms in healthcare, agriculture, and industrial processes. Because of the growing opportunity and spreading influence of biotechnology, business professionals in many fields find themselves challenged to understand the biotechnology industry. The maturity of enabling technologies, availability of eager capital, and market demand, also motivate scientists to commercialize their discoveries.

Building Biotechnology enables business professionals and entrepreneurial scientists to understand the biotechnology industry, its drivers, opportunities and strategies for commercial success:

- Fund and assemble a company - Manage research & development, alliances, and funding - Understand the legal, regulatory, political, commercial, and scientific factors influencing biotechnology - Invest intelligently in biotechnology stocks - Cultivate a career in biotechnology, with or without a Ph.D. or MBA

Informative, clear, and highly accessible, Building Biotechnology should be required reading for anyone looking to capitalize on the expanding influence of biotechnology.

I bought this book for a biotech project management class aside from the required books for the course and found it more helpful than any of the required books (not on project management, but as far as understanding the biotech industry). It provides a very good overview of the biotechnology industry that would be helpful for almost anyone touching this field - investors, professionals considering working in the field, patients considering a new drug therapy or participating in a clinical trial, doctors... I would recommend this book as an excellent first read to get the "lay of the land" followed up by more in-depth research in areas you need/want to know more about. By the way, my whole team ended up using the book to help them each prepare their part of our final project, which was a product development plan that took a novel cancer drug from phase 1 through commercialization. Thus you can see the scope of the book is quite broad and yet direct, the book is only 200 pages plus several useful Appendices (e.g. one is on careers in biotech and another provides and index of websites for different biotech areas).

As part of our MBA curriculum, we have been assigned books that dealt primarily with the biotech industry from an investor's perspective. Books such as "The Biotech Investor's Bible" and "From Alchemy to IPO" though insightful, leaves much when it comes to learning how to manage a business or at least understand some of the eccentricities of businesses in the biotech industry.

Building Biotechnology gives a good overview of what some of the key topics in financing as well as several important gov't regulations as it relates to "starting, managing, and understanding biotech companies." Alternatively, it leaves much as it relates to specific concepts such as financing and strategic management. Alternatively, Building Biotechnology is a good fast read and gives the reader a quick overview of what other books might go into "too much" detail.

I like this book a lot, because it give a 360 degree overview of the biotech industry. It is useful for scientists, investors, managers and IT people.

Poor, disjointed review of biotech with odd and off-target case studies. For someone who wants to know about the biotech industry and gain insight into how some of the major companies started, forget it. For someone who wants to understand how to start a biotech, no useful information. For the investor, you can learn more from the FDA website or the PHARMA website. Poor writing style. Reads more or less a collection of lectures to a college intro class

I was a little nervous about reading "Building Biotechnology" because I haven't had a science class since the 1990's, but I really wanted to learn more about it because I hear so much about it in the media. "Building Biotechnology" was a great way for me to get my feet wet on this subject. Friedman was kind enough to offer a chapter titled "Introduction to Molecular Biology." This helped refresh me on the basics. It was very easy to follow. Throughout the book, he uses charts and some diagrams to help summarize what he is discussing. This technique of presenting material makes it much easier to understand.

Friedman presents information on biotechnology that shows that it has been positive for our environment. Some information that I have received from the media has presented it in a negative manner. Through this book, I learned that because of biotechnology, a diabetic is able to use insulin that is made without having to slaughter 50 pigs each year for that one person. The process of biotechnology has also allowed oil spills to be cleaned up using by bacteria that was created for this purpose. I found this to be very interesting.

Biotechnology applications are divided into three categories: green for agricultural applications, white for industrial applications and red for therapeutic applications. Friedman breaks each of these categories down and goes into depth about how each serves a purpose.

The rest of the book discusses the business end of dealing with biotechnology and businesses. This covers intellectual property, regulation, politics, funding, research development and marketing, business development and investing. I cannot imagine a more comprehensive book on this subject.

I highly recommend this book to readers who would like to be able to hold an intelligent conversation on the subject of biotechnology. It is written in a manner that will enable you to easily understand all of what it is about. Of course, I also recommend this book to be used as a textbook in college or for businesses that are looking to get involved with biotechnology.

Received book free of charge.
