One Good Story Focuses on ACPHS' $37.3 Million Center for Biopharmaceutical Education and Training
Tuesday, Nov. 19, 2019 -- In January 2020, Albany College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences (ACPHS) will open the Center for Biopharmaceutical Education and Training Center for Biopharmaceutical Education and Training (CBET), a $37.3 million advanced technology facility that will train pharmacy students and mid-career professionals for jobs making biopharmaceutical drugs, which is a rapidly growing part of the drug industry nationwide.
In the College's latest One Good Story, ACPHS President Dr. Greg Dewey talks about the importance of the $37.3 million training center, and how the newly established center — the first academic bioprocessing center in New York state to be housed in a pharmacy school — will serve the workforce needs of the biomanufacturing industry by featuring emerging technologies such as single use and continuous bioprocessing, cell therapy, gene therapy, and real-time analytics. Hands-on programing will include real world applications operating in a simulated cGMP environment, as well as broader topics such as quality control and supply chain management.
