In this book, distinguished scholars Philip A. Rea, Mark V. Pauly, and Lawton R. Burns explore the science and management behind marketable biomedical innovations. They look at how the science actually played out through the interplay of personalities, the cultures within and between academic and corporate entities, and the significance of serendipity not as a mysterious phenomenon but one intrinsic to the successes and failures of the experimental approach. With newly aggregated data and case studies, they consider the fundamental economic underpinnings of investor-driven discovery management, not as an obstacle or deficiency as its critics would contend or as something beyond reproach as some of its proponents might claim, but as the only means by which scientists and managers can navigate the unknowable to discover new products and decide how to sell them so as to maximize the likelihood of establishing a sustainable pipeline for still more marketable biomedical innovations.

Industry Reviews

'The authors captured the magic of the biomedical industry from the inception of an idea through translational studies that lead to a product that can transform lives. Case studies illustrate the importance of scientific understanding, long periods of experimentation, willingness to take risks. This book is a 'must read' for anyone who wants to better understand drug discovery.' P. Roy Vagelos, Chairman, Regeneron Pharmaceuticals, Inc
'This new study by Philip A. Rea, Mark V. Pauly, and Lawton R. Burns provides useful information and insightful analyses of the biomedical innovation process.' Henry Grabowski, Professor Emeritus of Economics, Duke University, North Carolina
