Suitable forThis workshop is a pilot for Monash University's new Research Translation PhD. The pilot is open to PhD candidates and teaching/research staff. The workshop is designed as a starting point for participants to develop an interest or skills in Fermentation and Bioprocessing focussing scale-up and large-scale production.
Aims After completing this course participants will have:
  • An overview of the current trends in protein production for pharmaceutical research and clinical applications
  • A general knowledge of typical host cells and laboratory design
  • A basic understanding of the engineering principle for scale-up, production and purification (upstream and downstream) steps
  • an introduction to preferred industrial practices including monitoring of processes, product purity and quality
A short visit to CSIRO’s ISO9001 certified Tissue Culture Laboratory will be also arranged.
OverviewThe workshop will start with a series of lectures to cover the current trends in Fermentation and Bioprocessing including and basic principles and examples. A short introduction of the capabilities of Australian collaborative laboratories in the field of “Protein Production and Purification” will be also presented. At the end of the workshop the participants may visit CSIRO’s Recombinant Production Facility to have a better understanding of equipment and methods involved in translational research.
MaterialsSummary of slides will be provided to participants.
PlacesPlace numbers are capped at 20.
CateringCoffee/tea will be available for the participants during afternoon break.
