    by dwjtelevision

    A new annual review from Scientific American is aimed at “fostering a worldwide innovation climate with clarity, not clichés.” The report is called Scientific American Worldview: A Global Biotechnology Perspective. Yali Friedman, author of Building Biotechnology, and Jeremy Abbate discuss the report at the Biotechnology Industry Organization’s annual convention, providing a look at areas where innovation thrives and where it does not. They also discuss the impact of the global economic crisis on innovation. Friedman is also managing editor of the Journal of Commercial Biotechnology and lead editorial consultant for Scientific American Worldview. Jeremy Abbate is the director of Global Media Solutions for Scientific American. BIO represents more than 1,200 biotechnology companies, academic institutions and state biotechnology centers in the United States and 30 other nations.
