This course introduces technological innovation and emerging technologies that are changing the nature of competition in the bio-pharma sectors. It focuses on modern approaches for research and discovery of new molecules and on developing processes to manufacture them in large quantities. The course explores the two major routes for discovery and manufacturing: the “chemical” route and the “biological” route. Students receive a blend of conceptual overviews, essential technical and scientific basics, competitive, and the regulatory and management implications of the developments, cases and industry examples that are studied. Also listed under CBE 7683.
