Principles of Biomanufacturing For Pharmacists and Health Science Professionals
Interested in transitioning to an industry career? Looking to expand your knowledge of biopharmaceutical product development and manufacturing? Or just seeking more knowledge relevant to your work with patients?
Join us for a new course specifically designed for pharmacists. Through online lectures by industry experts and hands-on application at our CBET site, this course will give you the fundamentals of biopharmaceutical product development and biomanufacturing, spanning upstream and downstream processing, QA/QC, and regulatory guidelines.
The program covers the basics of upstream processing utilizing microbial and mammalian cell systems, including cell line development, growth kinetics, media formulation, and scale-up strategies. The downstream portion of the course will cover separation and purification of biologics and the systematic approach to industrial scale application of cell disruption, centrifugation, micro/ultrafiltration, and process chromatography. Quality control topics will include product- and process-related impurity and potency issues in the production of biopharmaceuticals. Emphasis will also be placed on the regulatory aspects of bioprocessing, covering current good manufacturing practices (cGMP) and validation issues.
Certificate of completion will be awarded to each participant who successfully finishes the course.
August 3 – September 9, 2021: Twelve online lectures in the evening
September 20 – 22, 2021: Three full days of in-person laboratory sessions @ CBET
