Biomanufacturing means growing living cells (bacterial, yeast, and animal cells) in large tanks called bioreactors and inducing them to produce a protein that serves as a medicine. That protein then must be separated from other cellular components and purified by using techniques that exploit its properties to isolate it away from other cellular proteins. Then technicians use analytical techniques to prove the purity of the isolated protein. In the future Biomanufacturing will be expanded to include the industrial production of biofuels, biomaterials, stem cells, and other products currently manufactured using chemical rather than biological techniques. Solano Community College is exploring the addition of these elements to its program.
This table represents the sequence of course offerings for the first cohort that will begin the degree program in Fall 2017. Currently each course is actively being taken through the Solano College Academic Senate’s curriculum approval process. Equipment has been purchased for the laboratory courses and faculty are designing the laboratory learning modules.
Staff, faculty, Board of Trustees members, students and donors gathered Oct. 4 at the Vacaville Center to honor Solano Community College’s 2016 scholarship recipients. By the end of the evening, $142,600 and 156 scholarships had been awarded to 95 students.
The 44th Annual Scholarship Awards Presentation was sponsored by the Scholarship Foundation Board of Directors and the Educational Foundation Board of Directors. The crowd was welcomed by SCC Superintendent-President Dr. Celia Esposito-Noy and SCC Scholarship Foundation President Barbara Pavao. Scholarships were awarded to students in a variety of academic and technical fields, including nursing, mathematics, journalism, and biotechnology, among many others.
