Are you interested in advancing your career in biopharmaceutical processing? Learn how to produce and purify biopharmaceutical products at the University of Maryland from June 6-10, 2011.
Offered through the university's Maryland Technology Enterprise Institute (Mtech) Biotechnology Research and Education Program, this hands-on, one-week training features two distinct sessions, a Fermentation and Microbiology Workshop from June 6-7, and a Downstream Processing & Protein Purification Workshop from June 8-10.
The two Biopharmaceutical Production training sessions:
June 6-7, 2011: Fermentation Microbiology WorkshopMore information about these workshops can be found here.
This session features hands-on instruction with various fermentation systems and acquaints attendees with the techniques, methodologies, principles and applications of aerobic bacterial and fungal fermentation. The workshop provides an opportunity for participants not only to learn the principles of bacterial and fungal fermentation scale-up at the bench, but also covers recent advances and up-to-date applications of this methodology.
June 8-10, 2011: Downstream Processing & Protein Purification Workshop
This workshop features hands-on laboratory exercises and classroom instruction on recovery and purification strategies for biotechnology products, especially proteins. Participants will integrate theory with practice in areas such as cell separation, cell disruption, chromatography theory and systems, sample preparation, columns and packing, adsorptive chromatography, and elution optimization.
