The biotechnology industry in Spain has grown rapidly over the last decade. The country's life science business and academic sectors are major European players in carrying out R&D, creating spin-offs, and engaging in a wide range of collaborations. Spain is particularly accomplished in biomedicine. During this week's Podcast, Dr. José María Fernández Sousa-Faro discusses the current state of biotechnology in Spain and the country's plans for growing the bioindustry well into the future. He describes the activities of some of the key members of the Spanish Association of Bioenterprises and talks about the research and product development efforts of the biotech companies belonging to the Zeltia Group. Dr. Fernandez also details the most important strengths of the biotech industry in Spain and lists a few of the roadblocks that need to be overcome before the Spanish bioindustry can reach its full potential.

Dr. José María Fernández Sousa-Faro is President of the Spanish Association of Bioenterprises (ASEBIO), and Chairman of the Zeltia Group

Do you agree that ecstasy should be studied for its potential therapeutic benefits?
