NIBRT performs world class, industry-aligned research in all areas of biopharmaceutical manufacturing with the overarching aim of delivering practical solutions for the biopharma industry.
Driving integration of the key components of manufacturing (process, facilities and infrastructure) to enable greater degrees of productivity and “right first time” product quality is a key deliverable of this research.
The NIBRT strategy in manufacturing research focuses on enhanced product quality and productivity. To achieve this, there are four central strands of research that are interconnected by NIBRT’s Principal Investigators. These elements; Cell Biology and Engineering, Bioanalytics, Advanced Manufacturing and Bioinformatics and Data Analytics span the disciplines of molecular biology, bioprocess engineering, protein analytics and bioinformatics.
Many biopharmaceutical themes are supported by the NIBRT research strategy such as technology innovation, cell line development, continuous processing and single use technologies. These areas of research along with many others are reinforced by the numerous relationships that NIBRT has developed with funding institutions, academic partners and industry associations.
