Completed the first year of the master Bio-Pharmaceutical Sciences. Research Project 1 must be completed with at least an average of 7.5 for the components Practical work, Report, and Oral presentation. Only available to students of the Industrial Pharmacy specialization.
The course deals with the development of biopharmaceuticals. Among other things, critical steps from preproduction in cell lines, development and commercial production to protein analysis are discussed. Of course, there is also attention for stability, purification and immunogenicity, which require extra attention compared to APIs of non-biological origin.
After completion of this course students will have:
Knowledge and understanding of quality and regulatory aspects of the biotechnological production process.
Knowledge and understanding the complexity of the development and commercial production of biologicals.
Knowledge and understanding of the quality challenges for Advanced Therapy Medicinal Products (ATMPs).
