Lunch'n Learn takes on the changes in the Biotech Industry (June 19, 2013) | Consulate of Sweden

Following Dr. Mykletun, the Honorary Consul General of Sweden, Astrid Marklund introduced Dr. Magnus Hook and talked briefly about his past achievements.
At the Event, Dr. Magnus Hook,Director for the Center for Infectious and Inflammatory Diseases at Texas A&M University Health Science Center, Houston, gave a presentation on the topic: "The Changing Landscape of the Biotechnology Industry". Dr. Hook has published extensively and his research is mainly focused on determining the molecular pathogenesis of infections and inflammatory diseases. However, at this event Dr. Magnus Hook went into depth on what factors are causing the changes in the biotechnology landscape and what the implications are for this field today, as well as what issues will drive the biotechnology industry in the future. Dr. Hook outlined that these changes come as a result of three factors in particular: a lack of available risk capital to early stage projects and companies, larger pharmaceutical companies like Pfizer are moving away from drug discovery and focusing on manufacturing and marketing, and Academia is taking a greater interest in biotechnology and collaborating with the private sector. DSC_0663 Dr. Hook also talked about his University, Texas A&M, and how it has changed from being an agricultural and mechanical University into becoming one of the leading universities in the world in fields such as petroleum technology and biomedical research. The Event gathered over 60 participants, among them many from the field of bioscience and six Consul Generals. The participants all spoke highly of the contents of the presentation and of how Dr. Magnus Hook responded to the many questions from the audience.
