What’s SDBN BUZZ Podcast?

The San Diego Biotechnology Network (SDBN), founded in 2008, has always been about forming a life science community and making connections. Through events and online interactions, we’ve made tens of thousands of connections between scientists and biotech professionals.

SDBN BUZZ will leverage the power of podcasting to:

Connect the Community. Most people know that to get the “real” scoop on the latest merger, hot new company, or the job market, you need to talk to your colleagues face to face. Podcasting gives you that “buzz,” and delivers it to you when it’s convenient: while you’re driving in the car, exercising, or doing a rote laboratory task.
Engage and Educate. All levels of scientists and professionals can learn from the community, whether they’re scientists charting a new career path, entrepreneurs looking for funding, or VCs looking for the next big advance to invest in.

Start Essential Conversations. We’re going to interview the big names you want to hear from, and we’ll also cover topics that are important to the growth and diversity of our life science cluster. We’ll interview scientists facing career challenges, for example due to the changing technology landscape or discrimination, as well as those who can help our listeners who are in a similar situation. We are also committed to representing women and minorities as guests, with no fewer than half of our guests being in these categories. Here are our topics:

  • Trending Topics
  • Startup Skills
  • Outreach Opportunities
  • IPO Insights
  • Finding Funding
  • Building Biotech
  • Genomics Gurus
  • Career Chat
  • Diversity Divas
  • Marketing Mavens
  • Going Green
