Wilton Centre event to welcome Cambridge University speaker
Cambridge academics to speak at Wilton Centre
A representative of the Department of Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology (CEB) at the University of Cambridge will address the next Wilton Wednesday meeting on Wednesday 24 June.
CEB remains the top ranking department of its kind in the UK and Europe.
Exceptionally, it is a merger between chemical engineering and biotechnology. This means that it is particularly well matched to many of the current activities at the Wilton Centre and on the Wilton Site.
CEB is set to enter into a new era as it moves to a new £60M facility in West Cambridge.
It has always worked closely with the North Eastern Processing Industries and wishes to re-invigorate that relationship through fresh ways of working with companies, including an array of self-funded projects.
In addition, Professor Chris Lowe from CEB will present a talk at the Wilton Wednesday meeting on Wednesday 9 September.
Professor Lowe’s primary research interest is in healthcare biotechnology, particularly where it is applied to the high-value low-volume sectors of biopharmaceuticals, sensors and diagnostics and microbial technology.
The work is highly multidisciplinary and not only covers aspects of molecular biology, biochemistry, microbiology, chemistry, physics, electronics and engineering, but also the entire range from fundamental science to strategic and applied science, much of which has significant commercial application.
