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, vaccines, and cell and gene therapy.
During this exciting online program, participants will learn about technical and regulatory considerations for biopharmaceutical production, 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.
