This program provides an opportunity for participants to obtain valuable experience through team projects based on bioprocessing for the production of monoclonal antibodies, enzymes, and vaccines as well as cell and gene therapy.
The Bioprocessing Summer Undergraduate Internship Training and Education (BSUITE) program for undergraduate research in bioprocessing and bioengineering at Keck Graduate Institute (KGI) in Claremont, CA, provides an opportunity for participants to obtain valuable experience through team projects based on bioprocessing for the production of monoclonal antibodies, enzymes, and vaccines as well as cell and gene therapy.
During this exciting two-week summer online program, participants will learn about technical and regulatory considerations for production of biopharmaceuticals including biotechnology and cell line engineering, cell growth, product purification, viral controls, and quality systems. Students will be introduced to career options within biomanufacturing that are enabled through KGI’s Master of Engineering in Biopharmaceutical Processing (MEng) program, including process development, production support, facility engineering, quality oversight, and regulatory positions.

For the summer of 2020, the BSUITE program will be taught entirely online. The program will be offered in a shorter, two-week format, and will be offered twice. The participants will be recognized at a combined completion ceremony at the end of the programs. Students can participate on the program from any location, but must be available to participate in synchronous on-line sessions from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Pacific Daylight Time.
The 2020 BSUITE program has reached capacity and applications are no longer being accepted.
