5 module series over 5 weeks
Early Stage Upstream Process Development
During this 5-week online academy you will gain a comprehensive understanding of successful upstream processing development
Upstream processing refers to the first phase in biomolecule production. This process involves a series of intricate steps which must be carefully followed to ensure a successful transition to downstream processing.
Over the course of 5 weeks this course will walk you through the basics of early-stage upstream process development for mammalian and microbial products. The course will focus on USP planning, cell-line development, media selection and will finish with quality considerations to help you lay the foundations for a successful and productive bioprocess.
What will you learn?
Understand processes involved with cell-line development including requirements, stability studies and vector design
Consider selection of media for different production strategies, testing and characterisation, viral and GMP concerns
Gain a comprehensive understanding of the initial upstream development process
Familiarise yourself with key quality considerations such as quality by design, experimental design and risk management
