Immuno-biotechnology and Bioinformatics in Community Colleges PRESENTERS: Sandra Porter, Shoreline Community College , Todd Smith, Digital World Biology, LLC The use of new technologies such as immuno-profiling (where large numbers of immune receptors are sequenced en masse) and targeted cancer therapies (where researchers create, engineer, and grow modified T cells to attack tumors) is leading to job growth and a demand for new skills and knowledge in biomanufacturing, quality systems, immuno-bioinformatics, and cancer biology. In response to this new demand, Shoreline Community College (Shoreline, WA) has begun developing an immuno-biotechnology certificate. Part of this certificate includes a five-week course (30 ...

As described in on the event page , the Biosciences Industry Fellowship Program, hosted by Forsyth Technical Community College in Winston-Salem North Carolina, was an action packed three weeks. The first week included visits and workshops in partnering schools. During the second week we participated in a week long green fluorescent protein biomanufactuing workshop that covered the gamut from 30 liter fermentation, to isolation, to purification, to filling vials in sterile conditions. In the last week we visited and toured area biotechnology companies and closed with presentations by the participants.
Photos from the workshop are below. ... Read more
