The Center of Excellence in Industrial Biotechnology is part of the Huck Institutes of the Life Sciences, a premier research institute, that brings together faculty and students from seven colleges and 31 departments. The Center leverages the Huck Institutes’ interdisciplinary expertise for industrial biotechnology, including, biopharmaceuticals, biobased chemicals and fuels and food biotechnology.
The goal of the Center is facilitating the advancement of a skilled workforce, stimulating faculty and student research, and accelerating corporate and community outreach. Bringing together the resources, both funding and facilities, the Center provides the means to take strides in significant research while preparing the next generation of leaders in industrial biotechnology.
Integral to achieving the Center’s three goals is the CSL Behring Fermentation Facility, a major core facility providing technical expertise and sophisticated equipment. In this exciting environment students learn practical skills on equipment found in major manufacturing facilities, while researchers can be confident that they are conducting their research on the latest instrumentation.
Together we are advancing the future of industrial biotechnology.
