The BioProcessing Summit
BPTC Senior Consultants, Drs. Sheila G. Magil and Frank Riske, will be leading CHI’s Introduction to Bioprocessing training seminar during its annual BioProcessing Summit held from August 3-7, 2015 in Boston, MA. The 1.5 day seminar, held on August 3-4, offers a comprehensive survey of the steps needed to product today’s complex biopharmaceuticals, from early development through commercial manufacturing. The seminar begins with a brief introduction to biologic drugs and the aspects of protein science that drive the intricate progression of analytical and process steps that follows. They then step through the stages of bioprocessing, beginning with the development of cell lines and ending at scaling up for commercial production. They will also explore emerging process technologies, facility design considerations, and the regulatory and quality standards that govern our industry throughout development. The important roles of analytical methods at all stages of development as well as formulation and stability assessments in developing and gaining approval for a biopharmaceutical are also examined. This class is directed to attendees working in any aspect of industry, including scientific, technical, business, marketing, or support functions who would benefit from a detailed overview of this field.
