BioBasics 101: The Biology of Biotech for the Non-Scientist is an intensive two-day course on the foundational science that forms the backbone of biopharma. We explore the connection between the basic biology and industry applications including personalized medicine, comparative genomics, and companion diagnostics. This course was designed for the non-scientist who wants to better understand how basic biology informs the development of biopharma products.


Five takeaways

1.       Fluency in the essential terminology of the biopharma industry
2.       Understanding of the science driving your company or client’s products   
3.       Improved ability to communicate with colleagues and stakeholders 
4.       Determination of where your organization “fits” in the healthcare landscape
5.       Explanation of innovative therapies within the biopharma industry

About the instructor: Kevin Curran, PhD

Dr. Curran received his B.S. in Biology from Southern Oregon University and his PhD in Developmental Genetics from the University of Washington in Seattle. Prior to joining Biotech Primer, Dr. Curran worked in the field of cancer research at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, where he analyzed the effect of small molecule therapies on apoptosis, or programmed cell death. Dr. Curran then worked in the stem cell field at UCSF, helping design procedures to generate replacement heart tissue for mammals. Most recently, he has worked in the field of behavioral neuroscience at the Salk Institute, exploring the manner that serotonin modulates various human behaviors, such as phobias and anxiety. He is currently teaching cell biology at the University of San Diego.
