According to the publisher, “Bioentrepreneur is Nature Biotechnology‘s portal dedicated to scientists interested in commercializing their research.”  Dr. Langer’s article presents the Johns Hopkins degree, the Masters in Biotechnology Enterprise and Entrepreneurship and explores the commercial sector of the biotechnology industry and how traditional academics can tackle the complexities of building a business.

“As an educator with 20 years of experience in teaching graduate students about developments in the biotech industry, I have learnt that successful education requires both good educators running your classes and a comprehensive program supporting them,” said Dr. Langer. “In this article, I describe my experience leading a bioentrepreneurship program at Johns Hopkins.”
