MBB Students Attend Networking Opportunity
Students from the UGA Master of Biomanufacturing and Bioprocessing (MBB) Professional Science degree program attended the 2015 Georgia Bio Innovation Summit in Atlanta on November 2, 2015. The annual Georgia Bio Innovation Summit (previously the Life Sciences Summit) provides a forum for Georgia’s bioscience community from industry, academia and government to discuss major trends and issues, including topics related to scientific research, product development, financing, business development, and public policy. During the one day event, MBB students are provided opportunities to network with potential internship sites and employers.
Georgia Bio (GaBio) is a non-profit, membership-based organization that promotes the interests and growth of the life sciences industry. Members include companies, universities, research institutions, government groups and other industry associations involved in discovery and application of life sciences products and related services.
The Master’s degree in Biomanufacturing and Bioprocessing (MBB) at the University of Georgia trains science and technology graduates for leadership roles in this rapidly expanding and vitally important field. While many biotechnology programs touch on biomanufacturing and bioprocessing, the UGA MBB program is unique in its focus on the full biomanufacturing experience with hands-on training and exposure to industrial grade equipment. Its curriculum includes academic courses in science and business, along with professional training with cutting edge companies through case study projects and internships.
