The Departments of Biology and Chemistry-Physics of Kean College are
considering offering a collaborative graduate program designed to train
students for employment in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology
industries. However, we are aware that a program designed for the private
sector by academicians runs the risk of missing the target. We are
therefore asking for input from those who know what background is needed
for a student to become an effective employee in these industries:
What specific experimental techniques from molecular biology/biochemistry
are most valuable in industry?
What methods of instrumental analysis are most important in the
pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries?
What should students know about tissue culture?
What should students know about genetics?
What should students know about synthetic organic chemistry and separation
What should students know about pharmacology?
Should students have experience with online literature searching?
Please send your response(s), via email, to any or all of these questions

Thanks for your help!
