At the ICGEB Trieste, the Biotechnology Development Unit (Skoko) focuses on the development of technologies for the production of biopharmaceuticals. The aim is to increase the know-how and capabilities of the pharmaceutical industries in ICGEB Member States by transferring lab and pilot scale technologies for the production and quality control of off -patent recombinant proteins. 


The Biotechnology Development Unit in Trieste has recently received a large grant from the Friuli Venezia Giulia Region to upgrade the facilities in Trieste. This will allow a significant expansion of their activities, including the provision of enhanced quality control services and the maintenance of GMP recombinant cell lines.
