Welcome to the 2016 BioProcess International Awards!

Since 2003, the mission of BioProcess International has been very clear: to connect biopharmaceutical scientists and decisions makers to the most valuable science, technologies and applications influencing the current and future trends in bioprocessing.

Since 2012, the mission of the biennial BioProcess International Awards has also been clear: to recognize the outstanding people, organizations, and technologies that define excellence and that have changed the status-quo by enabling more effective, less expensive biotherapeutic development and manufacturing.

Congratulations and thank you to all the winners, finalists, and nominees.
