Jefferson Institute for Bioprocessing Opens

The Jefferson Institue for Bioprocessing is the first and only North American training institute in collaboration with the Dublin, Ireland-based National Institute for Bioprocessing Research and Training (NIBRT), utilizing the GE Healthcare FlexFactory.

Video Game Challenges Citizen Scientists to Become Protein Designers

Citizen scientists may participate in de novo protein design by playing the video game Foldit, which puts the implicit knowledge of biochemical experts into the hands of players, who are then able to exercise their own creativity and intuition. Gamers may design structures that lead to novel applications in medicine, such as vaccines and biologic drugs, as well as in other fields.

Continuous Processing Requires a Rethink of Viral Strategies

Viral safety as we know it is batchy, and hence patchy, but it needs to transition to continuous operations, which means that in viral clearance studies, the goal is seamlessness.

Single-Use Technology: Enjoy the Upsides, Handle the Downsides
