Postgraduate Program in Industrial Biotechnology (PBI)
Tiradentes University - Universidade Tiradentes
Earliest start date
In 2010, Tiradentes University (Unit) launched a proposal for the creation of the Postgraduate Program in Industrial Biotechnology (PBI) with the Master's course, which was recommended by CAPES in the same year and which started its activities in April 2011. The PBI believes that an environment conducive to technological development in the state of Sergipe must overcome the existing structural deficiencies, especially by substantially expanding the small number of scientists working in research and development. One of the actions taken to achieve this goal was the expansion of the PBI in 2013 with the submission and approval of the proposal for the doctoral course, now with a master's and doctoral course aimed at research not only of regional impact but also at the level National and international. PBI assists in the consolidation process with the productive sector, of all the knowledge and basic research acquired by professors and students in the program. This action occurs through the use of microorganisms, animals, plants, and enzymes to synthesize, degrade and/or transform materials, especially those of regional interest.
