Biomanufacturing and Process Development (BPD)
Mission and Goals
BPD’s mission is to provide a forum for process development and manufacturing scientists and engineers to discuss bioprocessing issues. The group meets approximately eight to ten times a year with speakers from academia, industry, technology vendor experts, and regulatory experts. This is one of the 20-plus Exchange Groups that are supported statewide by NCBiotech.
Faculty, students, postdocs and industry members with interest in BPD are welcome.
Similar meeting format as previous years will be maintained in the 2016-2017 season. Each event will host multiple speakers centered around the event theme, allow a time for networking among attendees, and optionally include a vendor show or poster presentations.
