This is a system designed to support recruiters looking for candidates to fill positions within the regenerative medicine industry
Bellingham, WA and Vancouver, BC (Vocus) October 19, 2010
In response to a growing demand for regenerative medicine jobs, two companies with a history of collaborating in the space recently announced the launch of an online recruitment system specialized in the field of regenerative medicine.
"The development and launch of this online recruiting tool is in response to an unmet demand we see based on extensive industry experience and considerable market research," says Cell Therapy Group's Lee Buckler.
"Most life science companies have now begun investing in regenerative medicine strategies and the trend has even leaked outside of life science to companies such as Google Ventures which has informally identified regenerative medicine as one of their primary areas of interest when looking at companies in which to invest," states Lee Buckler, CTG Managing Director and frequent industry commentator.
"In our opinion, the 2008 announcement by Pfizer to create a substantial new regenerative medicine division will be seen as a seminal turning point in corporate perspectives on the industry," he states.
"Furthermore", he continues, "most major universities have now created both academic and research programs in regenerative medicine such that there is a new class of graduates now emerging in both scientific and commercial disciplines with regenerative medicine as a primary focus.
Finally, national, regional, and local governments are making substantial investment in regenerative medicine. Examples include ballot box initiatives like Prop 71 creating the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine or state-level tax breaks to incentivize companies to relocate with the promise of creating a growing base of biotech employees.
These combining factors culminate in the creation of a whole new volume of jobs in regenerative medicine and a increased demand for recruiters and recruiting tools that understand the industry.
"With RegenerativeMedicineJobs.com we have combined our expertise in website software development and regenerative medicine (RM) to develop a sophisticated system that ensures every post gets maximum attention and attracts the best candidates," says Pencilneck Software's Jeff Schafer.
"This is a system designed to support recruiters looking for candidates to fill positions within the regenerative medicine industry," Schafer concludes.
"We are applying the latest and most innovative technologies available in software, social media, and mobile platforms," says Steve Tannock of Pencilneck Software. "We tailored these technologies to support the rising demand for recruitment solutions in the rapidly growing field of regenerative medicine."
"Given our combined expertise", says Schafer, "we are confident this will very quickly become the place for both companies and academic institutes to recruit for job in the regenerative medicine, cell therapy or stem cell fields.
About Regenerative Medicine
Regenerative medicine is one of the fastest growing life science sectors.
One of the great misconceptions is that opportunities in the sector are limited largely to those in early-stage research. While it is true that the industry is still in the nascent stages of commercial development compared to other more mature segments in the broader biopharmaceutical industry, careers in regenerative medicine span the full research and commercial spectrum from pre-clinical to clinical research in both academic and corporate settings, manufacturing, regulatory, quality, operations, logistics, finance, business development, marketing, sales, communications, and executive management.
Most analysts agree that in 2008 the industry passed the $1 billion mark in annual revenue generated from sale of approved therapeutic products falling under the regenerative medicine category. Furthermore, most large multinational life science companies are now investing heavily into the sector on the promise that it will revolutionize healthcare in the coming decades.
