Bioinnovation entails identification, commercialization, and dissemination of novel biological technologies, concepts, and models. The primary objective of the Professional Science Master’s (P.S.M.) program in Bioinnovation is to develop a portfolio of knowledge and experience that allows individuals with background in science, business, communication, law, and policy and regulation to pursue careers in such fast-growing fields as bioinformation, the environment, global health, pharmaceuticals and biotech, technology transfer, and trade. The program offers: extensive biotechnology and biomedical background to challenge and complement traditional thinking and applications; review of the translational nature of biodiscoveries through classroom instruction and direct interaction with different bioindustry professionals, including scientists, lawyers, journalists, and others; and development of team and matrix work routines and effective communication skills. The Bioinnovation P.S.M. program draws on the strengths of Temple faculty in the College of Science and Technology and the Fox School of Business and Management. Program development and implementation are executed by the P.S.M. in Bioinnovation Steering Committee, which partners with Internal and External Advisory Board members and the Temple University Graduate School. Interdisciplinary Study: The two-year program consists of a series of multi- and interdisciplinary core courses related to application of systems biology; dissemination of bio­discoveries; epigenetic and genetic applications in drug design and drug response; ethics, regulation, and policy; feasibility assessment of innovative business ideas; innovation in biomodels and concepts; management and marketing for technologists; and research and commercialization of biomarkers and biotargets. Many of the courses are writing intensive and also provide students with opportunities to sharpen their oral presentation skills. All student research projects are developed with the cooperation of Temple faculty and members of our External Advisory Board under the guidance of the P.S.M. in Bioinnovation Steering Committee. Accreditation: Temple University is fully accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education. Areas of Specialization: Three areas of concentration are offered: Bioinnovation in Environment and Society Current Topics in Bioinnovation Implementation of Biodiscoveries in Health and Other Industries Job Prospects: Official job placement is not offered, but prospects are good. The program is designed to help recent graduates obtain relevant employment as well as accelerate career advancement and/or allow career shift of currently employed professionals. Graduates of P.S.M. programs are in high demand, which underscores the P.S.M. as an attractive career path for those who do not wish to become academic researchers or pursue a doctorate.
