Course Description

Biopharmaceutical Analysis & Cell Culture

The Postgraduate Certificate in Biopharmaceutical Analysis and Cell Culture will provide students with an in-depth knowledge and skills in biopharmaceutical production, analysis and cell culture-related topics. Students will be exposed to a set of technologies that provide state-ofthe-art tools for genomics, proteomics, metabolomics, drug discovery, screening and the analysis of biomolecules, such as DNA, proteins and small metabolites (biopharmaceuticals). In addition, the module will also introduce different chromatographic and spectroscopic techniques to analyse biopharmaceuticals, as well as other methods ranging from traditional immunoassays to state-of-the-art developments in bioarrays and nano-technology. The practical aspects of the module will cover biopharmaceutical analysis techniques and essential cell culture skills. The course will also train the student to critically evaluate approaches for method development in biopharmaceutical analysis and cell culture, and to critically appraise scientific literature and identity future trends in the area of biopharmaceutical analysis. In summary, the module will furnish the students with a competency required to undertake mammalian cell culture projects, and the ability to select the best techniques needed to analyse different biopharmaceuticals.
