A New Pathway of Discovery and Career Advancement
CBET is the first center of its kind established by a traditional pharmacy and health sciences college in the United States. It is a strategic extension of the academic programs at ACPHS that creates a new career pathway for students who are passionate about improving the human condition with advanced therapeutics that are made using biological systems—drugs called biopharmaceuticals.
This new pathway merges ACPHS’s rigorous curriculum in human biology, the processes of human diseases, drug design and development, with the fundamentals of bioprocessing and hands-on laboratory experiences in a modern biomanufacturing center that matches industry standards.
CBET is a core resource for undergraduate students enrolled in the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences, and the Department of Basic and Clinical Sciences. Current bachelor’s degree programs that include significant course and laboratory work at CBET are:
- BSc in Microbiology with a concentration in Industrial Microbiology
- BSc in Pharmaceutical Sciences with a concentration in Bioanalytics
In 2020 ACPHS established a new Professional Science Master’s in Bioprocessing and Biomanufacturing. This one-year, non-thesis program, is designed for early and mid-career professionals who want to enter the dynamic biopharmaceutical industry.
ACPHS offers a traditional M.S. in Pharmaceutical Sciences, as a two-year degree program that provides foundational coursework in the areas of pharmacology, medicinal chemistry, pharmaceutics, toxicology, and pharmacokinetics. Students in this program may take multiple electives at CBET. This degree is ideal for aspiring research scientists and working professionals who want to advance their career in the biomedical or biopharmaceutical industry.
Doctor of Pharmacy
Students enrolled in the Pharm.D. program at ACPHS can take electives at CBET to broaden their knowledge of biopharmaceutical development, manufacturing and formulation. Their work at CBET will give Pharm.D. graduates a significant advantage in their career trajectory, especially for those considering clinical and industry positions.
