Automated pipetting

Biotechnology manufacturing is changing from a one-size-fits-all paradigm to single batches of individualized therapeutics and tissues that are tailored to individuals. The new manufacturing processes require large numbers of technicians, which is increasing biotech employment opportunities. The Skills for Biomedical Emerging Technology Applications (NSF-ATE DUE #1800909) is a three-year endeavor to develop education recommendations for the next generation ... Read more
