About Us

The BioProcessing Network is a not-for-profit association of scientists, engineers, students, and others interested in fostering and advancing the knowledge and understanding of the technical aspects of the biotechnology industry. These technical aspects range from fermentation, downstream processing, formulation, filling, facility design, and construction to clinical trials and regulatory issues. The BioProcessing Network aims to create a forum for the active discussion and dissemination of all of these issues as they relate to the biotechnology industry.

The BPN also has a role in up-skilling the industry with regard to biotechnology and bioprocessing by providing a forum where members can interact and discuss the issues that are important to them and their company. This includes up-scaling from lab bench to reactor, controlling biological processes, laboratory design, GMP and other regulatory requirements, and the many other issues faced by the industry on a daily basis. The BioProcessing Network provides a great opportunity to meet with professionals that share your interests in the biotechnology industry. We encourage you to actively participate in the Network by proposing new events, activities, or topics for discussion, supporting the planned events, and encouraging others to join the Network and participate.
