MSc Bioprocessing and Biotherapeutics

You develop comprehensive knowledge and understanding of biosciences, expertise and skills in relation to biochemistry, manufacturing principles and laboratory practice required by the biotechnologies sector within an industrial context of biological products. You also have the unique opportunity participate in a research-intensive course, via a combination of taught modules and an in-depth research project, utilising the facilities of the University’s National Horizons Centre (NHC) . The NHC offers state-of-the-art analytical and digital infrastructure supporting basic and applied research in the biosciences and across disciplinary boundaries, aligned to academic excellence and industry needs. Building on the strengths of our current research teams, you are exposed to a significant internationally competitive research and innovation capability that is responsive and engaged with industry needs to develop sustainable relationships with regional and national partners to power growth and innovation in the bioscience sector. High-spec teaching, learning and collaboration spaces, labs, a state-of-the-art computing suite, and open innovation spaces give you the tools for project development using data analytics, modelling and simulation, visualisation and process improvement and control. The North East, particularly, the Teesside region, is an important regional, national and international hub for the life sciences sector, with both well established (FujiFilm Diosynth Biotechnologies, GlaxoSmithKline, Hart Biologicals) and emergent companies (Absolute Antibodies, StreamBio, Hexis Labs, Quantum Dx). Next to the Centre for Process Innovation’s National Biologics Manufacturing Centre and the University’s Centre for Professional and Executive Development, the National Horizons Centre is at the heart of an ecosystem of life science excellence. Facilities within the National Horizons Centre enable you to engage with a range of advance and innovative research themes including: Download pdf Order prospectus
