An industrial food and drug fermentation and separation biotechnology short course will be held on the campus of the Texas A&M University February 3-4, 2014. Objectives of the course are:
- Practical training in the field of cell culture, bioreactor operation, bioprocess paradigm and separation technology
- Increase understanding of the industrial food & drug fermentation biotechnology as well as related research being done across different countries, universities and industries
- Review new technologies in the fermentation and separation biotechnology industries and scale-up of bioreactors
- Practical "hands-on" demonstrations of pilot experiments of the fermentation process
- Establish a network of academic and industry experts
The program is sponsored by the Food Protein Research & Development Center at Texas A&M. The FPRDC works for industry providing R&D in the development of their products.
