Lauren MurraySenior Manufacturing Expert, Novartis Singapore Pharmaceutical Manufacturing Pte Ltd"At Novartis, our purpose is to reimagine medicine and we can only do that with highly talented individuals. Our partnership with Nanyang Polytechnic is vital in ensuring that students are well prepared for the challenges that await for them once they join our team. The level of training the students receive at NYP is customized and based on real life situations as the faculty continuously adjusts the curriculum so that it stays relevant. It’s always rewarding to see how new hires react the first time they view the inside of a manufacturing plant as they start to learn the details of how we make medicine. Now it’s our job to expose students to the magic of making medicines and harness their creativity to fuel the next wave of innovation in biomanufacturing."

Caine LeongHead of Commercial, Asia Pacific, Merck Contract Testing Services"We’re excited to collaborate with Nanyang Polytechnic to enhance the diploma programme with internship opportunities. An internship experience within a Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) biosafety testing facility will provide learners with insights into the biosafety testing requirements within the biomanufacturing industry. They will learn about the importance of ensuring the safety of the world’s medicines by delivering the highest quality testing services and regulatory expertise to bring life-changing medicines to patients.”

Andrew LowManager, Cell Culture Applications APAC, PALL Corporation"Pall Corporation is a global leader in high-tech filtration, separation, and purification, serving the diverse needs of customers across a broad spectrum of industries including life sciences. We are happy to support NYP’s Professional Competency Model (PCM) for the Diploma in Biologics & Process Technology by providing learners with relevant information and insights about the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industry.
