USA: Biotech Collaboration Sartorius Stedim Biotech Partners with Penn State University for Research in Biotechnology
Through this collaboration, the German-based company intends to create a biotechnology hub that promotes innovation.
Pennsylvania/USA – Sartorius Stedim Biotech and Penn State University have entered into a collaborative partnership to advance multidisciplinary teaching and research in biotechnology. This long-term relationship will support the education and preparation of the next generation of biotechnology leaders.
Part of Sartorius’ investment will be to enhance the Fermentation Facility that will play a significant role in Penn State’s Center of Excellence in Industrial Biotechnology (Coeib). Sartorius will provide state-of-the-art fermentation technologies, and a central laboratory within the Fermentation Facility.
Sartorius views this partnership as an opportunity to create a hub that will promote innovation in biotechnology. The Coeib provides a focal point for Penn State’s programmes in the area of industrial biotechnology, including the development of research and educational initiatives focused, among other areas, on biopharmaceutical manufacturing, i.e., the manufacture of medical drugs from biological sources.
