Publication announcement: A comparison of R&D indicators for the Vancouver biotechnology cluster

The Journal of Commercial Biotechnology (like a Harvard Business Review for biotechnology companies) just released another article I am a co-author of:

"A comparison of R&D indicators for the Vancouver biotechnology cluster"
Journal of Commercial Biotechnology advance online publication, June 3, 2008.

This article was co-authored with Monica Salazar, who is the Executive Director for the Columbian Observatory of Science and Technology, and Adam Holbrook, who is the associate director of the Centre for Policy Research on Science and Technology (CPROST) and also a member if the Innovation Systems Research Network (ISRN).

This article uses data from StatCan, ISRN, and BC Biotech/LifeSciences BC to take a look at whether there actually is a biotechnology cluster in Vancouver, and compares several of the indicators to other regions in Canada.

This article also has a brilliant metaphor for Vancouver's biotechnology sector portrayed as a garden.
