Biotech and pharma were a big focus at Career Zoo’s spring event on 11 March at the Convention Centre Dublin.

“[The] biopharma industry in Ireland is going from strength to strength; we’ve seen an awful lot of investment over the last period,” said Killian O’Driscoll, projects director at the National Institute for Bioprocessing Research and Training (NIBRT).

O’Driscoll said that NIBRT was at Career Zoo to help people that wanted to work in the biotech sector.

“We are a training and research organisation so we can provide training programmes for graduates, operators and technicians,” he said.
