Advanced Biomanufacturing Centre (ABC)

Brock University, St. Catharines, Ontario
What the facility does

Research and development in biomanufacturing

Area(s) of Expertise

The mission of the Advanced Biomanufacturing Centre is the pursuit of new methods for the manufacture of medicinally important compounds, chemical building blocks and new materials.

In the future, petrochemicals for manufacturing will not be available. New ways to provide these building blocks will have to be discovered.

The answers will come from the fusion of biology and chemistry, which have historically existed as “two solitudes” but will now solve the supply problems for chemical manufacturing.
