Jefferson Institute for Bioprocessing (JIB), Philadelphia, USA

In 2019, Jefferson officially opened the doors to the first - and only - specialiSed education and training institute for biopharmaceutical processing in North America that combines commercial single use processing equipment with the internationally recognized NIBRT curriculum.

The focus of JIB is hands-on training of industry professionals through short-term trainings, certificates and hands-on education of new bioprocessing engineers and scientists at both undergraduate and graduate levels.

The education and training programs in bioprocessing are anchored at the new state-ofthe-art JIB facility, located minutes from Philadelphia, PA.

The institute is focused on biomanufacturing and dedicated to education and industry-based research that translates advances in the life sciences into emerging therapeutics that benefit humanity.
