On the heels of its 20- year anniversary, Florida Atlantic University’s Center for Molecular Biology and Biotechnology (CMBB) on the John D. MacArthur Campus in Jupiter, continues to fulfill its mission in building a true biotechnology hub in the region. The Center has established the University’s first-of-its-kind university/industry partnership to train highly skilled workers in biopharmaceuticals and drug development.
Scientists from Riviera Beach based Sancilio & Company, Inc., a local biotech company founded in 2005, have begun teaching a graduate level course on FAU’s Jupiter campus titled, “Drug Development and Regulation,” to help meet their unique workforce needs. With 28 current job openings, the company typically has to search outside the state to fill these positions. Students who participate in the course attend lectures by Sancilio & Company scientists and also receive hands-on laboratory experience learning how to prepare and analyze pharmaceutical solutions. The course also provides them with industry knowledge and background on FDA regulations.

Boca Raton Regional Hospital’s Stephen Steinberg, MD, is now performing biopsies on at-risk patients during standard endoscopy procedures to view internal tissues at the microscopic level instantaneously. Boca Regional was the first in South Florida and is the only hospital in Palm Beach County to offer Cellvizio® to patients, which revolutionizes the diagnosis and treatment of certain cancers.
Cellvizio, the smallest, flexible microscope in the world, is an optical biopsy technology that enables tissue within the human body to be viewed directly at the cellular level. It allows for the detection of anomalies that are invisible to the naked eye in various different organs, particularly in the gastrointestinal, urinary and pulmonary systems.
