Biopharmaceutical Processing students visit Janssen Science

Biopharmaceutical Processing students visit Janssen Science

Published on: Friday, 11 May 2018

Students from the Certificate in Biopharmaceutical Processing (SPA), accompanied by Dr Sandra Lenihan (lecturer), visited Janssen Science in Ringaskiddy, recently.   Initially a presentation on Janssen by Director of Operations, Liz Dooley, was delivered. The site visit continued to the large molecule production building.   The students were given excellent insight to this state of the art facility covering both upstream and downstream biopharmaceutical processing.  Students could see all key unit operations such as wavebags, bioreactors, filtration and chromatography skids. The technical detail imparted by both Kevin Coleman and John Hourihan was superb.  Overall, this was a great opportunity enabling the group to see the processing environment of a leading local biotech company in Cork.
