About Biopharmaceuticals Engineering at UD

Biopharmaceuticals—medicines produced from living cells—have the potential to revolutionize the treatment of cancers, Alzheimer’s Disease, and inflammatory disorders such as rheumatoid arthritis.

The University of Delaware is home to the National Institute for Innovation in Biopharmaceuticals, a national partnership of 120 universities, community colleges, corporations, government agencies and nonprofit organizations aimed at advancing biopharmaceutical manufacturing innovation and workforce development. The institute director is Kelvin Lee, Gore Professor of Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering at the University of Delaware. NIIMBL is one of 14 Manufacturing USA institutes focused on fundamentally advancing U.S. competitiveness in key industries.

Many researchers across the University of Delaware, including faculty members and students in the College of Engineering, are working on key questions around biopharmaceutical innovation, such as how to extend the shelf life of these medicines and much more.
