Fermentation Technology

Monday, July 19, 2021 (1:00 PM - 5:00 PM) (EDT)


This course emphasizes the application of biological and engineering principles to problems involving microbial, mammalian, and biological/biochemical systems. The course aims to review fundamentals and provide an up-to-date account of current biological and biochemical technology knowledge. The lectures will emphasize and place perspectives on biological systems with industrial practices. Learn more: https://bit.ly/3mxexBs 

Participant Takeaways: 

- Examine the application of biological and engineering principles to microbial, mammalian, and biological/biochemical systems.

- Recognize the fundamentals of fermentation technology. 

- Describe current knowledge in biological and biochemical technology, with a focus on industrial practices. 

- Comprehend growth and metabolism, genetics, and metabolic engineering in the age of genomics, the biological basis for monitoring bioprocesses, including process analytical technology and modern biological concepts in bioprocess developments. 

- Examine eukaryotic and prokaryotic protein expression relevant to industrial practice, including post-translational modifications (esp. protein glycosylation). 

- Assess power requirements in bioreactors, modeling of bioprocesses, traditional and new concepts in bioprocess monitoring, and the biological basis for industrial fermentations and cell cultures. 

- Distinguish bioreactor operations in bacteria and mammalian cell systems, oxygen transfer and shear in bioreactors, process improvement through metabolic manipulations, and scale-up of bioreactors such as bacterial, yeast, and mammalian cells. 

- Analyze the bioprocess paradigm: Scale-down, bioprocess simulation and economics, sterilization, and bioburden in biological manufacturing. 

- Examine considerations in bioprocess simulation and economics, sterilization in biological manufacturing, and clinical implications of bioprocesses.
