September 16, 2021: How ABPDU Is Training the Next Generation of Bioprocess Engineers

Biotech and bioprocessing play a key role in mitigating climate change, but these industries face a pressing need for experienced people who can bring bio-based, sustainable products to market.

A new college course taking place at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory’s Advanced Biofuels and Bioproducts Process Development Unit (ABPDU) aims to meet this need by providing students with hands-on experience with industry-relevant bioprocessing equipment. Part of the University of California, Berkeley’s Master of Bioprocess Engineering program, the course prepares students for careers in the biopharmaceutical, industrial biotech, or food tech industries.
