Industrial and Pharmaceutical Biotechnology is the application of biotechnology and engineering in the exploitation of living organisms (mostly cells) and their subcomponents for sustainable, large-scale production of industrial bio-chemicals, biomaterials and pharmaceutical products. Industrial and Pharmaceutical Biotechnology has the potential to address the environmental sustainability of industry through the development of innovative technological solutions using renewable biomass as feedstock, rather than fossil materials, thereby having a significant impact on the existing chemical and pharmaceutical industry. This topic teaches students at graduate entry level the biological and bioengineering principles that underpin the development of industrial and pharmaceutical biotechnology processes and biological products. This topic provides students training in the development, design, scale-up, integration and commercialisation of bioprocesses, to be qualified as postgraduate-level industrial biotechnologists, capable of performing best industry practice globally.
