The weeklong Upstream Processing stream covers the foundations of protein expression, including Cell Line Development and Cell Culture. The stream also delves into Bioproduction issues such as developing representative small-scale models, scaling up production, optimizing bioreactors, and integrating disposables into processes. Throughout the week, case studies and helpful protocols are shared to help researchers with their jobs at the bench, all with an eye to increasing titers and productivity in bioprocessing.
