The training will introduce participants to the concepts of a large-scale bioprocessing system: where fermentation is the heart of the upstream processing to accomplish the biological synthesis of a recombinant protein, followed by the downstream processing which will produce the final purified product.
The training will address industrial regulations, quality control, environmental monitoring, cleanroom and aseptic conduct related to the industrial production of recombinant proteins.
The technical experience in biomanufacturing will be developed in the context of understanding the elements associated to leadership, project management, strategic planning, professional behavior and ethics.
Participants will work in interdisciplinary teams and are expected to engage in active participation through assigned tasks, as well as hands-on laboratory experiences.
Amgen BioTalents will be offered once every academic semester. Applications open at the beginning of spring and fall semesters of years 2015-2017.
