NWUN to further partnership with USU

After their recent visit to USU, a delegation of Chinese scientists from Northwest University for Nationalities (NWUN) in Lanzhou, China, are expected to return again in December, expanding the notoriety of the Center for Integrated BioSystems (CIB) training on an international scale.The scientists’ interest in USU’s CIB laboratory facility began last year, said CIB associate director Kamal Rashid, when a visiting scientist from NWUN spent a year at USU and grew interested in the center. They wanted to look further into efforts to provide training on bioreactors – vessels in which chemical processes are carried out.Established in 1991, the Center for Integrated BioSystems (CIB) has been home to state-of-the art equipment for use in fermentation, protein purification, and cell culture. Not only do USU researchers use the equipment and receive training at the Center, but off-campus and industrial collaborators as well.
