Springboard Biopharmaceutical Manufacturing Operation Students accompanied by  Dr. Sandra Lenihan, visited Eli Lilly, Kinsale on 19th Feb 2016.  Following safety orientation, the small molecule area plant was initially visited demonstrating the manufacturing capabilities, facilities layout and the environmental aspect of the site.   Gary Kirby (Eli Lilly host) delivered a presentation on “Bio manufacturing in Eli   Lilly".  The tour continued to the latest large molecule production building (IE43).   The students were given excellent insight to this state of the art facility. This tour incorporated both Upstream and Downstream Processing.  Eli Lillys technical biotech staff delivered detailed overview of all the relevant unit operations. Refreshments were provided by Eli Lilly and enjoyed after an energetic afternoon around the site.
