The Manchester Institute of Biotechnology will be hosting the SynbiCITE 4-day ‘More Business Acumen’ course “Building a Synthetic Biology-rich Biotech Business from Scratch” 2 – 5th March.  This is a highly regarded course that develops the entrepreneurship skills of future biotechnology leaders, and is aimed at PhD students, PDRAs and staff who want to start-up their own business, or are interested in spin-out activities. Expertise in synthetic biology is not required – we welcome applications from interdisciplinary scientists who are keen to learn more about this rapidly growing field.

Would you like to learn more about establishing a company? Indeed, do you have ideas from your research that you’d like to commercialise? This course will give you an insight into what is needed to launch and grow a successful business.
