Biomanufacturing and Process Development (BPD)
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 2018-2019 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.
Most events run from 12:30 to 5 p.m. at NCBiotech, unless otherwise noted. Registration is required for all seminars. Registration is $25 for industry/faculty, $5 for graduate/postdoctoral students and FREE for unemployed job seekers, unless otherwise noted.
Request information about monthly meeting and vendor sponsorship packages.
For other information, contact Nikki Pavlides.
