iBB Integrates ITN Awarded on "Continuous Downstream Processing of Biologics"

iBB Integrates ITN Awarded on "Continuous Downstream Processing of Biologics" | iBB | Scoop.it

The European Project CODOBIO: Continuous Downstream Processing of Biologics has been recommended for funding by the European Commission under a Marie Sklodowska Curie Action – ITN - Innovative Training Network. The consortium involves 20 participants form Academia, Industry and Regulatory Agencies. The goal is to develop a new generation of multidisciplinary young researchers fit to work in academia and industry in the field of continuous manufacturing of biologics with special emphasis on continuous downstream processing. The research and training program will cover all technical and management skills required for the implementation of continuous manufacturing in biotechnological industry. The IST team is composed by Ana Azevedo, Raquel Aires-Barros, Miguel Prazeres and Guilherme Ferreira from BERG-iBB.

Manufacturing of Therapeutic Exosomes

Manufacturing of Therapeutic Exosomes | iBB | Scoop.it

The project "EXOpro: Development of a scalable manufacturing process for therapeutic human mesenchymal stem/stromal cell-derived exosomes" has been recommended for funding by FCT. The goal of EXOpro is to develop a fully controlled manufacturing process for the production and purification of an effective, safe and fully characterized MSC-derived exosome-based product. Overall, the success of this project is expected to contribute to the development of novel cell-free strategies for  Regenerative Medicine settings. The project, which falls within the scientific area of Chemical Engineering, is headed by Ana Fernandes from SCERG-iBB and Ana Azevedo from BERG-iBB and involves a collaboration with the University of São Paulo.
