Microbial Fermentation - bPAT Program
Industry Training Program
March 23 - 25, 2015
535 Watson Drive
Claremont, CA 91711
Modern day biomanufacturing started with microbial expression and fermentation. Following nearly four decades of advances in strain and construct design, and fermentation technology, microbial fermentation remains the system of choice for manufacturing of many recombinant proteins, including for example therapeutic drugs not requiring complex post translational modification such as glycosylation. In the biopharmaceutical industry, the rapid advances in microbial fermentation science and technologies, combined with increasingly stringent regulatory expectations for biotherapeutics, require focused training of new bioprocess scientists and engineers who enter biomanufacturing, and upskilling of practicing professionals in the field.This 2½ day course in microbial fermentation is designed and delivered by industry and academic experts, specifically to prepare the participant's technical understanding of microbial fermentation for biomanufacturing.
Key learning outcomes include:
- Interactive case study analyses, E. coli fermentation demonstration
- Basic understanding of high producing microbial strains for manufacturing of recombinant proteins
- Fermentation technology - design, scale up and scale-down
- Media selection and optimization
- Fermentation operation and parameter control
- Technology transfer challenges and opportunities to teach new systems
- Novel microbial expression systems
- Next generation expression systems using systems biology design
The course will be delivered by a team of senior industry and academic experts at the Amgen Bioprocessing Center (ABC) at Keck Graduate Institute School of Applied Life Sciences, 535 Watson Drive, Claremont, California 91711. KGI is approximately 12 miles from the Ontario, California airport.
