Large-scale cell culture operations have improved tremendously in recent decades due to increased process understanding. Improvements in safety profiles have also been made with overlapping and redundant controls to prevent, detect, and remove potential adventitious agents. Process understanding is ultimately reduced to practice through a system of measurement, monitoring, modeling, and control for each unit operation in the bioprocess.
To address the current state of science and practice in this field, UC San Diego Extension will co-present a three-day course titled "
Developed in partnership with
"Today's sophisticated pharmaceutical drugs are not just chemicals, but also biological agents, such as proteins and antibodies," said
Villar added, "These new therapeutic agents require new means of production, completely unlike those used to produce traditional chemicals as drugs and they are subject to their own set of regulatory requirements."
Open to the public, the two-unit workshop is designed for professionals with a broad range of industry skills and experiences who wish to expand on their current knowledge and improve their ability to problem-solve. Having a rudimentary understanding of microbial or mammalian cell culture processes is advised.
