April 2007



In the 20
th

Century (1900


2000), the
Physical Sciences

(Physics and
Chemistry) changed
EVERY

aspect of
people’s lives.

innovation leader

of the 20th Century


Physical Sciences
in 20th century


Your parents and grandparents life



BioScience

in 21st century


YOUR life!


Health and Medicine


Food Products and Crop Production


Renewable Energy Sources and
Cleaner Environments


WHO will lead BioScience innovation in
the 21st Century?






Great opportunities and great challenges
for US students today…


NOT

just Biotechnology…





ALL branches of science dealing with


the structure and behavior of living
organisms




Researchers and Manufacturers look toward
the understanding and novel use of the
functions of living organisms


It is
Specific, Precise, Predictable



Biotechnology products = better products


Tailor to solve a specific problem


Generate gentler or fewer side effects


Have fewer unintended consequences


Employment in Biosciences will grow













13% FASTER













in next decade than overall employment


On average in 2003


Bioscience workers were paid



at least $20,000 MORE



than the overall national average
private sector annual wage



Biosciences involve a BROAD RANGE of



markets and professions


Medicine and health


Engineering and manufacturing
