  • The NIBRT Online Academy (NOA) is an online learning platform for the biopharma manufacturing industry created by the multi-award-winning training facility, the National Institute for Bioprocessing Research and Training (NIBRT). Content is presented in bite-size chunks of information and lessons are 45-90 minutes in duration.

    The recorded webinar "Developing Vaccines for Shigella" discusses the following topics:

    • The basic features of the type III secretion system that allow it to be such an effective virulence factor for a wide range of Gram-negative bacterial pathogens.
    • How features of the T3SS can be exploited to generate an effective subunit vaccine.
    • How to overcome hurdles in the production of a multicomponent subunit vaccine.
    • A potential method for intrinsically adding the power of a potent mucosal adjuvant to a subunit vaccine.

Content is presented in bite-size chunks of information and lessons are 45-90 minutes in duration.

    The webinar "Vaccine Development for COVID-19" discusses the warnings from the scientific community around the impact of a global pandemic that has largely gone unheeded, despite several recent outbreaks, including pandemic influenza, SARS and MERS. Even continual Ebola outbreaks in sub-Saharan Africa failed to capture sufficient global attention to ensure globally coordinated pandemic readiness. This has now shifted with the emergence of COVID-19 and while we are still in the early phase of this pandemic, it has impacted every corner of the globe and changed life as we know it.

Content is presented in bite-size chunks of information and lessons are 45-90 minutes in duration.

    The recorded webinar "Plant-Based Biopharmaceuticals: Plant and Yeast Derived Malaria Vaccines" discusses the development of recombinant antibodies and vaccines has allowed us to treat and prevent a large number of life-threatening diseases. However, as things stand in late 2020, the speed, capacity and scalability of current production systems are beginning to place limitations on this crucial technology. The large-scale production of antibodies, vaccines and other pharmaceutical recombinant proteins is restricted by the industry’s current reliance on fermenter technology, particularly the culture of mammalian cells. This expensive and time-consuming production platform prevents the distribution of recombinant protein drugs to those most in need. One way the above limitations can be addressed is through the use of plants and plant-based expression systems for rapid recombinant pharmaceutical protein production.

Content is presented in bite-size chunks of information and lessons are 45-90 minutes in duration.

    The recorded webinar "Biomanufacturing of Next Generation Vaccines: Challenges and Opportunities" discusses the FDA’s risk-based approach and provides the roadmap for generating safe and efficacious vaccines for patients in the US and around the world. The roadmap is built on prior knowledge of the product’s critical quality attributes, together with detailed information about the manufacturing process. It considers a comprehensive process and product analytical control strategy that ensures product consistency and reproducibility. Both preventive and therapeutic vaccines, with or without adjuvants, need to be well characterized, with analytically defined active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) concentrations and impurity levels, proven through toxicology and clinical studies. Importantly, an effective vaccine should have low antigenic variability and be able to elicit long-lasting cellular antibody-mediated immunity response at relatively low dosages.
