The mission of the Biotechnology Innovation and Regulatory Science Center is to educate and train students to become global leaders and innovators to advance discovery and development, especially in areas related to biotechnology, and to meet global health needs with an initial focus on Africa. We accomplish this mission through innovative knowledge-based programs in STEM areas, an emphasis on interdisciplinary collaboration, and an emphasis on engaging industry.

Currently we are publishing the following categories of work:

  1. Technical Reports
  2. Literature Reviews
  3. Translational Discovery
  4. Research into Practice
