Full Summary: Researchers discussing opportunities in biomanufacturing

Researchers discussing opportunities in biomanufacturing

The manufacturing of biological products such as tissues, cells, small molecules, therapeutic proteins, vaccines, and biologic delivery devices is currently highly inefficient with little to no automation and generates tremendous waste products.

Georgia Tech was a founding member of President Obama’s Advanced Manufacturing Partnership (AMP 1.0) initiative. Biomanufacturing was one of the top cross-cutting technologies specifically identified by the AMP 1.0 steering committee.

Georgia Tech is uniquely positioned for a major initiative focused on biomanufacturing because of its combined strengths in manufacturing, bioengineering, robotics and systems engineering.

All interested parties are welcomed to attend, this includes faculty, graduate students and post-docs.
