About

This Biopharmaceutical Processing (Online) programme from the Atlantic Technological University is particularly suited to those in employment in the biopharma industry. 

Overview

The overall aim of the Biopharmaceutical Processing (Online) programme from the Atlantic Technological University is to deliver training which is customised to meet the exact needs of the clients in the biopharma sector. 

Biopharmaceutical Processing involves study of the discovery, development and processing of modern, medical drugs by artificially growing some or all of the components utilising cell culture technologies. 

The processes involved are more biological-based as compared to the more chemical-based processes associated with small-molecule pharmaceutical products.

 The Medical Biotechnology and Biopharmaceutical sectors are among the fastest growing in the Life Sciences area both nationally and internationally. 

Careers Opportunities

According to Killian O’Driscoll, NIBRT Director of Projects, there was further good news for the Irish biopharma sector throughout 2018 with the announcement of several major investments. These investments saw the continued diversification of advanced biopharma manufacturing capabilities in Ireland including facilities for Antibody Drug Conjugates (ADCs), cell therapies, iopha-oncology products and the world’s largest single use contract manufacturing capacity.  Investments included:

  • AbbVie Expands Oncology Capability at the Company’s Site in Ballytivnan, Sligo
  • MSD is to develop a new biotechnology facility in Dublin, with the expected creation of up to 350 new jobs
  • Takeda to invest €25m and create up to 70 new roles in a new facility at their Grange Castle site in Dublin
  • WuXi Biologics to Invest €325 million to Build Largest Biomanufacturing Facility Using Single-use Bioreactors in Ireland
  • Phibro Animal Health to establish new biotech facility in Sligo, creating up to 150 jobs
