What governance to set up for the creation of a new Business Unit?
Dear network, 
I would like to receive any advice, examples, models for governing the creation of a new Business Unit in Biotech sector. How to structure the approach, what is the project Management methodology to apply (Waterfall, Hybrid, agile...). Do you have any reading suggestion? Thank you very much for your answers.

I would highly recommend you check the Disciplined Agile: Ways of orking guide. You might find the answers to all your questions there and you are the only one who can determine then whihc is the best way to move forward with because the answers to all those questions is dependent on many factors unique to your organization which you only know.

I would suspect that unless there is a very clear picture of the end state for this new BU (e.g. operating model, roles & responsibilities, points of integration with the existing BUs and support teams), an adaptive approach is likely to be a safer bet than a highly predictive one as there will likely be pivots based on internal and external feedback.

Well, there are differences between governance of organizations/business units, project portfolios and projects themselves. PMI has some guides about it

and then there is PMJ with a plethora of free articles (for PMI members) on governance

In my opinion, governance should be agnostic of any PM flavor
