Bioengineering Platforms Workshop – Heron Island Research Station

CBI secured a Global Strategy & Partnerships Seed Funding in 2017 to develop and grow a multilevel research partnership with the Novo Nordisk Foundation (NNF) Centre for Biosustainability (CFB) from The Technical University of Denmark (DTU). Backed by a $300m investment from the NNF, CFB is the only academic organisation currently capable of taking on full commercial strain engineering.
As part of the outcomes of this grant, CBI in collaboration with AIBN Staff hosted an Industrial Bioengineering Platforms Workshop at the Heron Island Research Station. The workshop focused on Systems Biology topics: specifically CHO cell engineering & analytics, Omics data integration & modelling, Actinomycete engineering / Natural products and Gas fermentation. There were 25 attendees from DTU (7), CSL Ltd (2), CBI (8) and AIBN (8).
