4-week online academy

Understand the bioprocess analytics needed to successfully navigate early development, scale-up, transfer and commercialization

Course Overview

The biotech industry is growing at an exponential rate. Therapies such as monoclonal & polyclonal antibodies, recombinant DNA proteins and viral gene therapies provide exciting opportunities but also face unique challenges when it comes to their development and manufacture.

Over 4 weeks and 7 modules, this online course offers an accessible look at process and analytical method development for such products. Beginning with the fundamentals of bioprocessing analysis and characterization, learners will progress through the production process from upstream to harvesting and purification, to downstream processing and formulation. Other aspects such as use of analytical methods, viral safety and regulatory considerations will also be explored.
