Workshop laboratory sessions:
The workshop will provide laboratory sessions in a newly renovated learning facility within the University of Maryland Bioprocess Scale-up Facility (BSF) on the College Park campus. The BSF houses bioprocessing equipment for process development and optimization ranging from 1 L to 250 L. Cell separation and protein purification equipment by several vendors will provide hands-on learning opportunity to participants.

Some of the lectures will take place in the laboratory, allowing participants to follow along on equipment while the discussion evolves.

Three-day workshop $995
Lodging is not included in registration fee.

Continental breakfasts, catered lunches and coffee breaks will be provided, and are included in the registration fee.
