Prepare for a Job in Biotechnology

Join us for an informal info session about UCSC Extension’s certificate in Biotechnology, a program that provides a solid understanding of the scientific disciplines underlying the industry, a foundation in the principles that guide drug discovery and development, an appreciation of cutting edge bioscience research and technology, and a broader awareness of today’s biopharmaceutical industry. If you are a professional working this industry or preparing to enter this dynamic field, you will develop a solid scientific foundation in the principles and applications of biotechnology.

Note: This presentation will include discussion about our Bioinformatics and Clinical Trials Design and Management programs. 

Presenter: Edward Rozhon

EDWARD ROZHON, Ph.D., chair of the Bioinformatics, Biotechnology, and Clinical Trials Design and Management programs, has had a long career in the biopharmaceutical industry as a contributor to the development of drugs to treat viral and autoimmune diseases, as well as several types of cancer. He has worked in both nonclinical and clinical areas of drug development, in the global pharmaceutical and biotech industry, in a contract research organization to support clinical research as well as in academia. He retired from Genentech in 2014 as a senior manager of clinical trials for autoimmune, infectious, and ophthalmologic diseases. On completing his doctorate at Indiana University, he pursued post-doctoral training in neurovirology at the University of Alabama School of Medicine and at Northwestern University School of Medicine and was subsequently appointed to a faculty position in microbiology and immunology. He has taught courses in drug development and virology at UCSC Extension since 2001.
