Dear readers,

Our month-long series on entrepreneurship in life sciences ended last week.  Each article in this series has been written by an expert in the field and addresses a unique aspect of entrepreneurship. Whether you are a PhD student thinking about becoming an entrepreneur or a seasoned scientist who would like to encourage innovation or entrepreneurship in your lab, these articles will definitely make sense. If you still haven't read them, find them below in our columns section. Do read and share them widely.

As the year draws to end, it is time for assessments and introspections. We too are looking back at the year to see which of our stories got our readers interested? As an extension, we will bring to you our most read stories in a special year-end newsletter. We hope you will wait for it. If you have any suggestions about what would you like to see in this newsletter, please write to us. We look forward to hearing from you.

And now, here are the stories from November.
