A partnership between the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC), the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) and a consortium of leading companies to support innovative bioprocess-related research, including that needed for the manufacture of complex biopharmaceuticals.
Bioprocessing Research Industry Club (BRIC) funded research addresses bioprocesses at all scales of operation, from the small amounts required for preclinical studies through to post-license bulk manufacture and aims to:
- help strengthen and develop the research community in the bioprocessing area through interdisciplinary research and the provision of training
- ensure the transfer of knowledge between the science base and industry through the support of effective networking between academic groups and companies involved in BRIC.
