The biotechnology section of AAPS is comprised of members from diverse backgrounds in industry, academia, and government who share a common interest in the evolving field of biotechnology. The primary goal of this section is to unite multiple scientific disciplines in a forum where experimental results and experiences are shared and evolving concerns on the research, development, and manufacture of biotechnology based pharmaceuticals are discussed.
