San Diego's 'Godfather of biotech' discusses industry with CSUSM business students

Abstract:
David Hale is known as either a serial entrepreneur or, to some, as the "Godfather of biotech" due to his history of founding and developing more than 15 biotechnology and specialty pharmaceutical companies in San Diego County.
As founder, chairman and CEO of Hale BioPharma Ventures LLC, a private business focused on the start-up of biopharmaceutical companies, Hale has seen the region evolve into a biotechnology cluster.

He also is an advocate for nanotechnology and believes a problem with many drugs is they are not orally volatile.

"One of the opportunities with nanotechnologies is to get nanoparticles out of those drugs … and make them orally active," Hale said.
