Arindam Bose has spent 35 years directing innovations in the biopharmaceutical industry and now serves as an independent consultant at AbiologicsB LLC, a bioengineering consulting firm he founded in 2016.

His successful career in the biotech industry began with an engineering degree from Purdue, which equipped him with a deep knowledge of engineering fundamentals. “More importantly, Purdue taught me to follow a proactive and structured approach to problem-solving,” Bose says. “I learned team dynamics and how to influence via persuasion rather than authority.”

While at Purdue, he researched biomass fuel and soon became interested in new discoveries made in the field of recombinant DNA, which led him to pursue his career in the pharmaceutical industry. His innovations in process development, manufacturing and strategic planning have been highly influential in the industry.

Since receiving his PhD in chemical engineering from Purdue, Bose has served as research scientist, project leader, manager, director, executive director, vice president and consultant in the biopharmaceutical industry.
