Bryan Husk is an Associate Director for the Master of Science in Biotechnology Program with the UW-Madison School of Medicine and Public Health. The two-year professional master’s degree is designed for people working in the biotechnology industry interested in understanding how science, business, regulatory policy, and the law impact the development and commercialization of new biotechnology products and services.
A founding staff member since the program’s launch in 2002, Bryan leverages two decades of academic and industry knowledge to facilitate strategic partnerships with regional biotechnology companies, especially in the areas of professional development, talent recruitment, and employee retention. To date, the M.S. in Biotechnology Program has over 450 alumni and students, the majority of whom are valued contributors employed by the many biotechnology companies leading Wisconsin’s surging biotechnology industry.
Bryan has years of experience working with students, faculty, and industry leaders to grow and develop this professional master’s program. He oversees new student recruitment, admissions, program marketing and communications, including social media and industry outreach. He also ensures the program provides continuous and timely support for all student, faculty, alumni and prospective student needs and requests.
Bryan’s professional skills includes information technology management, including web site, database, and application development. He also provides instructional design and academic technology support to faculty and students by administering the program’s online courses.
Prior to joining the Masters in Biotech Program, Bryan was a member of University Relations at Western Michigan University where he served as the school’s first University Web Manager. He was a leader in defining the visual identity and information architecture for the WMU homepage and many of its primary web sites. Bridging the gap between the news and communications office and the campus information technology division, Bryan led initiatives at WMU that included e-commerce, online learning, streaming media, and web usability.
