Oxford University is leading in the vaccine race by The Economist

A blend of experience, research money, fast approvals, and production agreements. Oxford’s vaccine is already in three late-stage trials. Only one other vaccine, developed by Sinopharm, a Chinese firm, has started a late-stage trial, and it does not have the global support and finance that Oxford’s does.

We’ve Reached Peak Wellness. Most of It Is Nonsense. by Brad Stulberg at Outside

Across the country, everyone is looking for a cure for what ails them, which has led to a booming billion-dollar industry—what I’ve come to call the Wellness Industrial Complex.

Management Course by OHSC

This introductory Leadership/Management Course has been designed exclusively for us by industry veterans and respected academics. This course focuses on three primary topic areas, which include the characteristics of leadership and management, professional resource management, the provision of feedback and the organisation/management of meetings.

Creative Thinking: Techniques and Tools for Success by ICL

The greatest innovators aren’t necessarily the people who have the most original idea. Often, they are people- or teams- that have harnessed their creativity to develop a new perspective or more effective way of communicating an idea. You can train your imagination to seize opportunities, break away from routine and habit, and tap into your natural creativity.

The Science and Business of Biotechnology by MIT

This course focuses on early-stage biotechnology companies, with particular emphasis on understanding the underlying science, technology, and disease targets—together with the application of novel business structures and financing methods—to facilitate drug discovery, clinical development, and greater patient access to new therapies.
