Mr. Vogel has had a passion for BioProcess Engineering and Biotechnology from the first time he heard about them in a freshman course Introduction to BioChemical Engineering back in the 1970s. Throughout his early career, Jim gathered vast amounts of information and experience working for biopharmaceutical industry leaders as a biochemical and plant engineer. He also worked as a microbiologist and interfaced between process development and production systems. He became experienced in site engineering, facility engineering and overall management in biopharmaceutical companies.
In 2007, Jim ventured out on his own to start a company which could help both suppliers and end users in the bioprocess community to make better and safe therapies. Today, this company is now known as The BioProcess Institute. Jim and his team help clients worldwide to successfully navigate through the complex world of bioprocessing.
When Mr. Vogel is not at The BioProcess Institute, he stays busy with his family in Rhode Island, plays tennis, races his bicycle, and tries to sail.
