Quality by design for effective bioprocess characterisation and validation

Posted on: 05/12/2018

Registration is now open for a short course for scientists and engineers working in the biotech sector as part of UCL’s MBI programme.

UCL’s award-winning¬†Modular Training for the Bioprocess Industries (MBI¬Æ) programme provides innovative UCL-accredited short courses in bioprocessing, specifically created to support skills development of scientists and engineers working in the bioeng/bioprocess space or looking to move into these areas.

Cost-effective process characterisation that fulfils evolving regulatory requirements is a challenge faced by all process development scientists and engineers. The Quality by Design for Effective Bioprocess Characterisation and Validation course running at UCL from 25 – 28 February 2019 provides an opportunity for delegates to become familiar with QbD, DoE and PAT and lifecycle concepts and to debate developments with expert speakers during a series of lectures, workshops and case study sessions.
