The University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign is a research powerhouse and home to a plethora of labs filled with faculty experts. These labs act as a bridge to help us collaborate with industries to kindle research and engage in professional development opportunities. The Integrated Bioprocessing Research Laboratory is a great example of a UIUC facility that serves as a backbone for its partners, advanced knowledge, and learning in the industry.
The Integrated Bioprocessing Research Laboratory (IBRL) opened in September 2018 to support pilot-scale bioprocessing research and effectuate economic development opportunities for the state of Illinois. The four years of IBRL’s operation coincided with a global production expansion in the biomanufacturing and bioprocessing industry. IBRL’s combination of preparation, relationship building, and fortuitous timing has resulted in rapid growth and active industry engagement. Industry partners of the IBRL work with the lab to: use our Research facilities and expertise, educate the next generation of bioprocessing leaders about your equipment and increase your brand awareness, upskill your workers and collaborate on industry-wide goals, and hire trained and knowledgeable students.
Due to its immense success in less than 5 years of operation, the IBRL has the ability to help your company innovate at a rapid pace. The potential talent pipeline, opportunities for professional development, an avenue for brand awareness in a leading community, state-of-the-art facilities, and leading researchers make the IBRL the perfect place for you and your team, products, and ideas to grow.
