  1. Tim Tripp Director, Biotechnology Resource Center 4/17/2013

  2. Outline The Biotechnology Institute General introduction Faculty The Biotechnology Resource Center Services Equipment Training

  3. Provides advanced research, training, support, and university-industry interaction in biotechnology.

  4. 29 years of Progress in Biotechnology Established in 1983, the BioTechnology Institute is a joint venture of the College of Biological Sciences and the College of Science and Engineering.

  5. The BioTechnology Institute Continues to be a Cornerstone of University-Industry Interaction in the LifeSciences Renewed support from the University of Minnesota Continuous improvement and transformation

  6. The BioTechnology Institute faculty represent four colleges at the University of Minnesota: COLLEGES • The College of Biological Sciences (CBS) • The College of Science and Engineering (CSE) • The Academic Health Center (AHC) • The College of Food, Agricultural, and Natural Resource Sciences (CFANS)

  7. DEPARTMENTS The BioTechnology Institute draws faculty from the departments of: • Biochemistry Molecular Biology and Biophysics • Bioproducts & Biosystems Eng. • Center for Drug Design • Chemistry • Chemical Engineering and Materials Science • Civil Engineering • Ecology, Evolution, & Behavior • Genetics, Cell Biology, and Development • Mechanical Engineering • Microbiology • Plant Biology • Soil, Water & Climate

  8. BioTechnology Institute faculty have broad expertise in the areas of: • Biocatalysis • Metabolic engineering/ microbial physiology • Combinatorial biology • Synthetic ecology • Population dynamics • Molecular Biology • Proteomics, and • Focused expertise in defined areas such as bioremediation, biomaterials, biosensors, and bioinformatics.
