Successful product design and development requires the ability to take a concept and translate the technology into useful, patentable, commercial products. This book guides the reader through the practical aspects of the commercialization process of drug, diagnostic and device biomedical technology including market analysis, product development, intellectual property and regulatory constraints. Key issues are highlighted at each stage in the process, and case studies are used to provide practical examples. The book will provide a sound road map for those involved in the biotechnology industry to effectively plan the commercialization of profitable regulated medical products. It will also be suitable for a capstone design course in engineering and biotechnology, providing the student with the business acumen skills involved in product development.

Reviews

'The text provides a systematic introduction to the field that is well suited for the classroom, with clear organization and appropriate weighting of the many subtopics. The book should also help industry engineers and managers as well as life science entrpreneurs to better understand the full range of steps required to develop a medical product and to understand the broader context of the health technology industry.' Paul Yock, Director of Biodesign Program and Professor of Operations at Stanford Graduate School of Busines, Stanford University 'The book looks like it will be very important and interesting. The outline lists all the sorts of things that matter but are never written down in a comprehensive text.' Dr Carmichael Roberts, Vice Chairman, WMR Biomedical and cofounder of Surface Logix (a private company in Boston) 'Shreefal Mehta's book is very timely for it provides insights and important information regarding the major steps entrepreneurs must take as an idea progresses through the various steps of commercialization ... Consequently this text is a must for anyone engaged in this process.' Joseph Bronzino, Editor-in-Chief of The Biomedical Engineering Handbook (CRC Press, 3rd Edition, 2006) and President of Biomedical Engineering Alliance and Consortium 'Dr Mehta covers the evolution of products in the biomedical industry from ideas to income. The book is a comprehensive and practical overview of all the steps and challenges required to successfully develop and commercialize a product. Throughout the text he illustrates his points with real life examples. This is a text that should be broadly read by students and professionals alike!' Jim Mullen, CEO of Biogen Idec 'Launching a new biomedical company is a complex undertaking, and this book is packed with useful details on all aspects of the startup process. I highly recommend it to anyone contemplating a new venture.' Gifford Hanson, serial entrepreneur and CEO of The Foundry 'This text is an excellent reference guide for any Biotech/med entrepreneur. It is the most comprehensive collection of required knowledge of the various aspects of this industry. The anecdotal case studies are highly valuable in driving home key points throughout the text. I will highly recommend this book to starters in this industry and for people who have collected different pieces of the puzzle through scattered sources over years and need to organize all that in their minds to put it in perspective.' MIT Sloan School MBA candidate and Kauffman Foundation intern 'Real life issues experienced by life sciences product development teams are described in the book. Key hurdles along the commercialization path are clearly organized and will help the reader navigate multiple business functions and disciplines to take a product to market. Dr Mehta's book is on my table as a handy reference and overview of the business and product development challenges involved in the health care industry. Young scientists, engineers and even experienced executives involved in the health care industry should read this book.' Christoph Hergersberg, Global Technology Leader, Biosciences, General Electric Global Research Center
