Change lives. Change organizations. Change the world.
This course focuses on the bioscience industry (biotechnology, pharmaceutical, medical device, genomics, and vaccine) with an emphasis on the ethical and social challenges of running companies in these areas. It also introduces students to processes and decision making regarding new biotechnology product development, clinical research (both in developed and developing countries), responsibilities to human research subjects, regulatory hurdles, market timing decisions, interactions with physicians, product safety, data publication, direct-to-consumer marketing of prescription drugs, and product litigation.
Students in the class are representative of those who work on this industry sector and, hence, come from the schools of business, medicine (clinical and bench), bio-engineering, and chemical engineering. Law students are also invited to enroll, scheduling permitted.
This elective course is offered to all Stanford GSB and Sloan students. Current students, please check MyGSB for more information.
