'The authors captured the magic of the biomedical industry from the inception of an idea through translational studies that lead to a product that can transform lives. Case studies illustrate the importance of scientific understanding, long periods of experimentation, willingness to take risks. This book is a 'must read' for anyone who wants to better understand drug discovery.' P. Roy Vagelos, Chairman, Regeneron Pharmaceuticals, Inc 'This new study by Philip A. Rea, Mark V. Pauly, and Lawton R. Burns provides useful information and insightful analyses of the biomedical innovation process.'
