Director, Kamal Rashid, Ph.D. welcomes attendees to the Advanced Biomanufacturing Symposium | April 2016

Join us for the 2nd annual WPI Advanced Biomanufacturing Symposium, a two-day event focused on emerging technologies that will have a significant impact on the biomanufacturing industry in the near term. This year we focus on biomanufacturing emerging technologies, both upstream and downstream, and the best practices and challenges of manufacturing cell and tissue therapies.

Organized by WPI’s Life Sciences and Bioengineering Faculty and the Biomanufacturing Education & Training Center, the symposium brings together industry and academia to review new technologies, process developments, research findings and to share experiences, insights and operational challenges the field is facing. Last year’s symposium was over-subscribed, with more than 90 percent of our attendees coming from the industry, so please register today to ensure your spot.

The symposium will feature session talks by subject matter experts from Biogen, Eppendorf, GE Healthcare, MilliporeSigma, Organovo, Pall Life Sciences, Sartorius Stedim Biotech, Unum Therapeutics and more, as well as, faculty members from Harvard, MIT, Tufts University, University of Delaware and WPI.
