The University of Maryland’s Biotechnology Research and Education Program (BREP) is offering two workshops to help biotechnology professionals advance their careers and learn the latest technologies.
With the event hosted by the directors of the Bioprocess Scale-Up Facility and Biopharmaceutical Advancement Facility (one of the top providers on Science Exchange), you can come to learn how to produce and purify biopharmaceutical products. The hands-on, one-week training includes two sessions taught by world-class faculty and practitioners. Academic and government discounts are available as well.
June 3-4, 2013: Fermentation Microbiology Workshop ($995)
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 5-7, 2013: Downstream Processing & Protein Purification Workshop ($1,295)
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.
