Here on Of Schemes and Memes we’re introducing you to all the blogs on the new nature.com blogs site. We’ve already heard about the News blog, the Spoonful of Medicine, the Sceptical Chymist, Stepwise and Naturejobs blog and now we hear about from Brady Huggett who coordinates the Trade Secrets blog by Nature Bioentrepreneur…
Trade Secrets was launched in March 2011 as a platform for biotech’s global voices. Nature Biotechnology Business Editor Brady Huggett is the main editor for the blog, but the content is supplied by more than 30 authors working in or alongside the biotech industry all around the world. It is a varied, talented group, but we’re always looking to add new voices, especially in areas not currently represented.
The blog is ultimately fueled by posts from our authors – we publish two or three a week. We also occasionally put up free content from Nature Biotechnology and a global news roundup in our “Five Day Filter.” We encourage comments on posts and direct questions to the authors.
Trade Secrets aims to be a source of information on biotech business around the world, as well as offer advice on how to break into the industry. Many readers are academics looking to make the jump into business, which explains why this was one of our most popular posts.
