Biologics Modular and its partners at Purdue are founding partners of the new National Institute for Innovation in Biopharmaceutical Manufacturing (www.niimbl.org). The Institute has offices in Newark, DE on the University of Delaware campus.
NIIMBL will help to advance U.S. leadership in the biopharmaceutical industry. It will also foster economic development, improve medical treatments and ensure a qualified workforce by collaborating with educational institutions to develop new training programs matched to specific biopharma skill needs.
The Institute received $70 million foundational funding from the Department of Commerce on December 16, 2016. Secretary Penny Pritzer was on hand in Newark to make the award. More details can be found here.
