Boston Skyline at early morning

Biomanufacturing Summit

Hosted by the Biomanufacturing Science and Technology Consortium (BSTC), Massachusetts BioManufacturing Center (MBMC) and UMass Lowell.

Who will be participating?

Biomanufacturing Summit 2018 will mark the seventh annual event of the Biomanufacturing Science and Technology Consortium. Expected summit participants are scientists and engineers from bio-pharmaceutical manufacturers, technology/system providers, raw material suppliers and agencies in the areas of development, manufacturing, and engineering. We hope professionals and leaders of biopharmaceutical industry will be able to get together and talk about future biomanufacturing challenges and breakthrough technology. It will also be a great chance to network with professionals from major bio-pharmaceutical manufacturers and various technology providers such as Biogen IDEC, Genzyme, Pfizer, Momenta, MilliporeSigma, BMS, GE, SAFC and many more.
