Description: The biopharmaceutical business is an established sector that continues to grow rapidly. The sector consists of numerous product groups, from vaccines through therapeutic antibodies and proteins to regenerative medicine therapies. This introductory webinar is intended for those new to the subject. It covers the manufacturing routes for these compounds, with illustrations of the biochemical engineering challenges that have been overcome. With downward pressures on the cost of goods and with increased competition to launch new products, the biochemical engineering community has responded by developing innovative technology such as single-use processing and researching into the fundamentals of stem cell culture.
