The Biomanufacturing Hub of the CCCBCCCP BIO 2013 - April 22, 2013Sonia Wallman,NBC 2 PI and Executive DirectorCCCBC Biomanufacturing Hub Co-PI
NBC2 History In 1998 the Co-PI joined Bio-Link as the Northeasthub, already specializing in biomanufacturing In 2005 the Co-PI received a center grant forbiomanufacturing, the Northeast BiomanufacturingCenter and Collaborative. This fall we received PhaseIII funding for the NBC2 which included funds fordeveloping a national certification inbiomanufacturing. Shortly after the announcement of the NSF ATENBC2 grant, we learned we were theBiomanufacturing Lead for the DOL TAA CCCT CCCBC.

Leveraging NBC2 to Develop a CoreBioscience Skill Standard NBC2 will leverage its resources, to develop abiomanufacturing skill standard that can be usedtogether with the lab skill and biomedical deviceskill standards developed by Bio-Link andSengyong Lee’s group to produce a CCCBC CoreBioscience Skill Standard.
Building Local BiomanufcturingCareer Pathways MCCC and Bucks will develop sustainable, local biomanufacturing careerpaths to support the development and growth of biomanufacturersmaking bioproducts such as biopharmaceuticals, and also biofuels andbiomaterials to replace petroleum based manufacturing. These career pathways will start at the local WIBs (including thePhiladelphia area WIB), the local high schools, the workforcedepartment and academic support areas of the colleges, and involve thelocal biomanufacturers.
Building Local BiomanufcturingCareer Pathways Our other Biomanufacturing Hub partner in theCCCBC is LA Valley College in LA/Orange Countyregion (and informally LA Trade Tech indowntown LA). You will hear from Lennie Ciufo,Workforce Director, this afternoon. UnderLennie’s leadership, a wonderful partnership withBaxter has been developed and they are workingon an incredibly interesting set of stackedcredentials that are being fashioned into an A.S.degree in Biotechnology.
Biomanufacturing Course Development With our CCCBC Biomanufacturing Hub partners we will buildbiomanufacturing suites housing biomanufacturingequipment, collaboratively write new equiment and processSOPs and a hands-on lab manual for a new biomanufacturingcourse that will be embedded in biotechnology programs atLA Valley, Bucks and MCCC. Again, leveraging NBC2 expertise, the hands-on laboratorycourse will be accompanied by 15 two-hour interactive onlinelearning experiences each with a set of slides furnished byNBC2 PI and Co-PIs and based on the NBC2 industry writtenIntroduction to Biomanufacturing textbook.
Virtual Industrial Biomanufacturing Continuing to work with Yakov Cherner andATe-Learning to develop an Virtual IndustrialUpstream Processing module funded by NBC2. Will begin on Virtual Downstream Processingmodule funded by CCCBC. This will be integrated into theBiomanufacturing course we are constructingto be used by our Biomanufacturing Hubpartners and others.
