The Biotechnology (BIOTEC) section is comprised of members from many diverse backgrounds in industry and academia who share a common interest in the evolving field of biotechnology. The primary goal of this section is to unite multiple scientific disciplines in a forum where they can share experimental results as well as concerns regarding the research, development, and commercialization of new biotechnology based pharmaceuticals. Members in this section can meet at national and regional meetings to exchange ideas and present scientific data. Applied and basic scientists, at all phases of research and development for both therapeutic and diagnostic agents, are actively involved in the AAPS BIOTEC section. In particular, the successful discovery, production, delivery, and commercialization of biotechnology derived drugs requires input from many diverse fields including molecular biology, cell culture, recovery process, pharmacokinetics, metabolism, analytical biochemistry, regulatory affairs, and formulation sciences.
