The North East of England has a unique offering for bioprocessing and biopharmaceuticals. The strong industrial heritage, within large-scale chemical and biomanufacturing make it the perfect place for companies to access research, training, and manufacturing excellence for bioprocessing in the UK.

The Northern Bio-Accelerator Partnership (NBioP) is a strategic partnership between the National Horizons Centre (NHC), CPI and FUJIFILM Diosynth Biotechnologies (FDB), creating a bioprocessing, biomanufacturing and biopharmaceutical hub in the North East of the UK. Together, the NBioP provides basic and applied bioprocessing research, through to biopharmaceutical scale up and ultimately, the commercial manufacture of life changing medicines.

Join the National Horizons Centre, CPI and FUJIFILM Diosynth Biotechnologies on Wednesday 12th May to hear about collaboration in the bioscience sector, the extraordinary growth being seen in the Tees Valley Region, and ultimately how the NBioP can help grow your organisation.
