DANVILLE, VA, October 9, 2013 – Danville Community College students Emily Lein and Lee Robinson, both enrolled in the Nanotechnology program, suit up in Engineered Biopharmaceutical’s (“eBio?) clean room recently before job shadowing employees at eBio. DCC’s Nanotechnology program students learn about the science and instrumentation needed to work in pharmaceutical, medical and materials labs which use the latest methods for detecting particles in the 1/100 billionth meter size.

Engineered BioPharmaceuticals is located in the Dan River Business Development Center and produces dry powder pharmaceuticals using a process called Atmospheric Spray Freeze Drying (ASFD). This process has an economic, morphological, stability, and route of delivery advantage over current pharmaceutical manufacturing technologies.
