Innovation: Biotechnology in South Dakota with Christoph Bausch

Jul 24, 2017

Innovation: Biotechnology Businesses, Biodegradable Plastics, Dr. K.

Biotechnology is a booming business, and South Dakota companies are competing with organizations around the globe. Local scientists pioneer medicine, agriculture, manufacturing, and research. NPR talks with a researcher-turned-business developer about what he sees for area investors and scientists. Christoph Bausch  is chief science officer for S-A-B Biotherapeutics in Sioux Falls. He grew up on a Nebraska farm, and his parents worked in medicine. Bausch says he left the Midwest to chase a science career at companies around the country. Then he returned to the heartland to further his work in biotechnology.  Before we hear how adults see biotechnology, SDPB's Kealey Bultena takes you to the South Dakota Biotech annual summit where some future scientists help equip fellow kids.
