This 4-year Biochemical Engineering and Bioprocess Leadership programme at University College London (UCL) is a research degree, equivalent to a PhD, with an additional training element designed to develop sector-specific skills and prepare graduates for leadership positions within the bioindustry sector.
All projects are industry collaborative with a significant proportion of the researcher’s time being spent with the sponsoring company.
The EngD Centre research ranges from fundamental studies through to their translation and impact on clinical and commercial practice. Research is structured across five main areas:
- High throughput bioprocess design: the creation of single-use, automation and microfluidic technologies to give fundamental insights into bioprocess design and scale-up
- Industrial biotechnology: biocatalysis for the sustainable synthesis of chemicals and pharmaceuticals from renewable resources
- Macromolecular medicines: the manufacture of advanced biopharmaceutical therapies including antibodies, genes and recombinant vaccines
- Regenerative medicine: the translation of stem cell science into novel cell and tissue-based therapies
- Research Skills (Synthetic Biology or Modelling and Simulation streams)
- Transferable Skills in Bioprocess Research and Development (including Responsible Research and Innovation)
- Design of Experiments for Bioprocess Optimisation
- Biomolecular and Cellular Analysis
- 48 months
