About the Center

The Research Center for Animal Biologics (RCAB) is a regional leader in animal vaccine research fuelled by a team-centered, multidisciplinary approach to animal research initiatives. RCAB has a long track-record of creative and interdisciplinary approaches to animal vaccines and adjuvants. To produce groundbreaking research and animal biologics is the drive for the research team at RCAB.

Using the funding from the Ministry of Education in Taiwan, a research team- that was initially formed in 2002 in the Department of Veterinary Medicine, NPUST- for animal vaccine studies establishes RCAB in 2018. The following table lists the previous work, projects and events that contribute to the establishment of RCAB.

The establishment of RCAB

Key funding from the Ministry of Education

2013-2017

The Ministry of Education funded the project, "the Development of an Model University of Science and Technology" and using this funding "the Center for Animal Biologics Preliminary Manufacture" was established.

2010-2012

The Ministry of Education funded the project, "the Integrated Application and Development of Key Technologies for Animal Vaccines and Adjuvants”. This funding boosts the construction of essential facilities in the Center for Animal Vaccine and Adjuvant Technologies.

2003-2009

The Ministry of Education subsidized the establishment of “the Center for Animal Vaccine and Adjuvant Technologies”.

Other funding and programs

2014-2018

To promote the involvement of the vaccine industry in teaching and strengthen students’ industrial experiences, we implemented the Ministry of Education's "Animal Vaccine Industry College - Animal Vaccine and Adjuvant Process Industry Credits Program".

2012-2013

Using the funding from the Ministry of Education, we conducted the pilot program of delivering the training courses in translational medicine and agriculture. The courses provide the fundamental and practical training for professionals in vaccine technologies.

2010-2012

The Council of Agriculture funded a three-year project, “the setup of a novel vaccine technology platform and the development of multivalent vaccines”. Using this funding, we have acquired a few patents in multiple countries. We have also successfully transferred some techniques and patents to industrial applications.
