FIVE MODERN PRACTICES FOR ADVANCING FERMENTATION SKILLS
Apply your bioprocessing knowledge in a concentrated, hands-on experience

 ​

HANDS-ON WORKSHOP OVERVIEW: LIMITED TO 12 PARTICIPANTS

Up to now, biotechnology courses taking place in worldwide facilities require significant time away from your office and the ability to make a financial investment.

The Center of Excellence in Industrial Biotechnology (CoEIB) is reimagining this model by designing a 2-day workshop that compliments virtual workshops and has you stepping into the CSL Behring Fermentation Facility at University Park, PA where you will work with leading instrumentation.

Because of the accelerated nature of the hands-on experience, the virtual courses were designed to create a common baseline knowledge.  Yet we know that you may bring significant fermentation experience gathered during your career.

By following these simple steps, you will receive notification if your experience represents an equivalent baseline to the information covered in our virtual workshops

Your career experience may provide you with the opportunity to attend. Use this site to APPLY and determine if your experience is equivalent to our virtual workshop content.

WHAT TO EXPECT

  • Hands-on laboratory experience in the CSL Behring Fermentation Facility
  • Interaction with Penn State’s leading educators
  • Access to electronic workshop materials
  • Certificate of attendance

WHO SHOULD ATTEND

Knowledge of the techniques of microbial fermentation positions you to effectively communicate with subject matter experts, critically assess operations or convey information to your colleagues.  

VIRTUAL WORKSHOP EXPERIENCE

We aren’t asking you to repeat any didactic training, we are giving you the opportunity to apply it. This course is designed for people who attended one of the following workshops:

  • Four Critical Concepts for Learning Fermentation Principles
    2020: October
    2021: January and April | May
  • Eight Essential Principles in Downstream Processing
    2021: March


CAREER EXPERIENCE

While this workshop is designed to complement past virtual courses, we realize that you may bring significant fermentation experience gathered during your career.

To extend you this opportunity, we have created a short survey to assess your qualifications. ANSWER THESE QUESTIONS and our course leaders will confirm if your experience provides the foundation to successfully participate in this workshop. You will be notified within two business days.
