The main motivation is to bring biotech and life sciences news in a comprehensive and concise manner to, but not limited to, clinicians, research scientists, students and biotech investors.
The print edition appears once a month. Articles published in APBN are clear, concise and comprehensive. In accordance to the theme of the issue, editors serve to provide a good coverage of news and information in the School of Life Sciences; e.g. Pharmaceuticals, Healthcare, Policies & Regulatory Affairs, Acquisitions, Food & Agriculture, and Technology.
