The Upstream Processing stream details best practices for the foundations of protein expression that support biological drugs, including cell line development, culturing cells, and issues surrounding bioproduction, such as integrating disposable systems, bioreactor engineering, and developing small-scale models for scaling up production. Synthetic biology, genetic engineering, predictive and information technologies, and next-gen strategies will be explored as part of the ongoing efforts to ensure quality while achieving manufacturability and reaching bioprocess goals.
