NIIMBL Knows; Cheaper Medication Means Lives Saved
In the fast-moving world of biopharmaceuticals, the University of Delaware is preparing to demonstrate the importance of being NIIMBL.
Launched at UD’s Delaware Biotechnology Institute last year, the National Institute for Innovation in Manufacturing Biopharmaceuticals (NIIMBL), a Manufacturing USA institute, is moving from its startup and organizational phase into working on developing new technology, says Kelvin Lee, the institute’s director and Gore Professor of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at UD.
NIIMBL’s mission isn’t to create new medicines. Rather, Lee says, it is to develop technology that will help biopharmaceutical manufacturers produce drugs more reliably and get them to the patient faster.
