New AIM-Bio newsletter connects project stakeholders

Published June 27, 2022

Headed up by BTEC's Delia Bradley, the Accelerated Innovation in Manufacturing Biologics (AIM-Bio) program is now spreading the news about its various activities through a quarterly newsletter, Innovating with AIM-Bio.

AIM-Bio brings together personnel and resources from NC State and the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) to collaborate on driving innovation in research and education in the manufacture of biopharmaceuticals. The five-year program, which began in 2020, is funded by the Novo Nordisk Foundation, and involves multiple centers and departments at both universities.

The first issue of the email newsletter, distributed in May, highlights the following program activities:

  • The AIM-Bio exchange program, which is designed to foster collaboration among faculty, technical staff, graduate students, and postdocs.
  • Research in the Woodley Lab at DTU. John Woodley, Ph.D., professor in the Department of Chemical and Biochemical Engineering at DTU, serves on the leadership teams of both AIM-Bio and DTU's Fermentation-Based Biomanufacturing project, which is also funded by the Novo Nordisk Foundation.
  • Professional development courses. As part of the AIM-Bio program, eight new professional development courses are being developed at BTEC, and the newsletter features two offered recently: Automation, Process Control and Real-time Monitoring of Yeast Culture and Protein Precipitation/Crystallization. For information about these and other continuing education courses offered at BTEC, visit the Industry Training schedule.

The next issue of Innovating with AIM-Bio will be published in early August and will include information about the 2022 AIM-Bio symposium, a gathering of NC State and DTU program participants plus project stakeholders.
