The Incubator: Publications of Interest
The Incubator is part of a larger effort to pass on knowledge of the process of product development and commercialization. Two HBI advisors Fred Mermelstein Ph.D. and Carl Novina M.D.,Ph.D. have co-edited a book entitled, “Biotechnology: From Idea to Market”, which describes the fundamentals of due diligence and commercialization processes that are the learning objectives of HBI. Indeed, HBI was an inspiration for the textbook. HBI is highlighted in the Introduction and is described in Dr. Novina’s chapter on translational research in academia. Those interested in learning the basics of biotechnology will find this text invaluable as a guide through the complex process of drug development.
