The National Institute for Innovation in Manufacturing Biopharmaceuticals (NIIMBL) is pleased to announce funding for 10 new projects in technology, workforce development, and their Global Health Fund initiative, resulting from the Institute’s Project Call 4.1, and with a total value of approximately $4.6M.
“Since our inception five years ago, we have been able to fund many great projects that have resulted in significant advancements in the biopharma industry, and this year is no different. The eagerness and ambition this industry has to continuously improve is always encouraging, and I am looking forward to seeing how our newest projects will contribute to accelerating the industry’s manufacturing process,” states Kelvin H. Lee, Institute Director.
The new projects selected help expand NIIMBL’s portfolio in the areas of cell and gene therapy manufacturing as well as in vaccine stabilization through manufacturing technologies among other key innovative technologies. With projects ranging from creating new purification processes that will meet a global need for high-purity, high-volume, high-dose protein therapeutics to creating a modularized extensible online training platform on leading-edge process analytical technologies to better prepare candidates for the drastically growing workforce need in the biopharmaceutical industry, NIIMBL strategically selects projects that will help to advance technologies and workforce training for key areas of interest to our community.
