The early registration deadline is June 30

Oeiras 29.04.2015

The 5th edition of the Animal Cell Technology course will take place in Llafranc, Costa Brava, in Spain, from 27th September to 1st October 2015. The course is organized by the European Society of Animal Cell Technology (ESACT) with the collaboration of ITQB and iBET. The early registration deadline is June 30.

This introductory course to Animal Cell Technology provides an overview of the field, from the more basic aspects to the final application. It should be of interest
to those starting their research activity in the field, both from academia or companies, and also to those wishing an update of the state-of-the-art of Animal Cell technology
in a short Course. 

The number of participants to the course is limited to 30. WIth an intensive four-day schedule, the course aims to foster interaction between participants and lecturers, who will be present throughout most of the course. The program has slots dedicated to the preparation and presentation of case studies by participants, and discussion groups with the lecturers.

Confirmed lecturers include Terry Papoutsakis (University Delaware, USA), Manuel Carrondo and Paula Aves (IBET, Portugal), Hansjörg Hauser (HZI, Germany), Francesc Gòdia (UAB, Spain), Stefanos Grammatikos (UCB Pharma SA, Belgium) and Anne Tosltrup (Biogen-Idec, Denmark).

Lectures will cover the main topics of Animal Cell Technology:

  1. Cell line development
  2. Cellular mechanisms
  3. Post-translational modifications
  4. Bioreactor design
  5. Downstream processing
  6. Genomics and proteomics
  7. Bioreactor scale-up and scale-down. Single use bioreactors
  8. Process Analytical Technology
  9. Economical aspects of ACT bioprocesses
