Asia Pacific Biotech News
Asia Pacific Biotech News (APBN) was first established in year 1997. For many years, the publishing firm World Scientific Publishing has been printing the APBN magazine and has circulated the prints within a small inner circle of professionals. In mid-August 2015, some changes are introduced to the magazine; in print and on the website. 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.

The web-content is updated on a regular basis, particularly, Twitter and Editors' Choice. You can now find the printed APBN copies at Kinokuniya Singapore's main bookstore at Takashimaya Shopping Center (391 Orchard Road, #04-20/20B/20C Ngee Ann City).
