Serial biotech entrepreneur Langer talks launch strategy

In a piece for Nature Biotechnology, serial biotech entrepreneur and MIT professor Robert Langer shared some of his experiences in launching more than two dozen biotechs over the past 26 years. "I started my first company in 1987 because I realized it was an effective path for transforming science into life-saving and life-improving inventions. Startup companies provide one means for accomplishing ends that interested me: creating products that have a positive effect on human health. I did this first with a colleague, but through the years I have also started many companies with students and postdocs in my MIT lab." Report
