The National Institute for Innovation in Manufacturing Biopharmaceuticals (NIIMBL) is a public-private partnership dedicated to advancing biopharmaceutical manufacturing innovation and workforce development. NIIMBL is one of 14 institutes in the Manufacturing USA network. Each institute focuses on a different technology, but share one common goal — to drive U.S. leadership in advanced manufacturing. NIIMBL is headquartered at the University of Delaware.
The NIIMBL Scientific Project Manager manages a portfolio of NIIMBL projects, which are vetted through a competitive project call process that occurs semi-annually. NIIMBL committees collaborate to develop the project calls based on NIIMBL and other approved roadmaps and input from open NIIMBL workshops on current and emerging industry challenges, gaps, and opportunities. Projects will further the NIIMBL mission of advancing and innovating biopharmaceutical manufacturing by addressing a pre-competitive technical challenge or advancing and/or creating resources for workforce training.
