Learn the business and science behind new biomedical and biotechnological projects with the Bioinnovation Certificate from Temple University's College of Science and Technology and the Fox School of Business. 


This Bioinnovation Certificate program at Temple University  is intended for those interested in earning practical training in the business side of science. The certificate will prepare you to advance in your career or shift into expanding fields such as biotechnology, pharmaceutical science, public health, technology transfer and science information.

Developed with input from an external advisory board of bioinnovation leaders, the program is designed for you to meet the growing demand for cross-trained employees in biology and business. For this certificate, you will focus on the identification, commercialization and dissemination of novel biological concepts, models and technologies. In addition, you will gain the management skills to navigate situations that arise from innovation, such as acquiring funding, creating startups and protecting intellectual property.
