Downstream Processing

July 22-26, 2019

Continuing discoveries in molecular biology, genetics, and process science provide the foundation for new and improved processes and products in today's biochemical process industry. The production of therapeutic proteins, which is made possible by discoveries in biotechnology, will generate sales exceeding $100 billion in 2010. In addition, biotechnology has led to marked improvement and expansion in the traditional biochemical process industry for production of enzymes, diagnostics, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, and foods. Continued introduction of new technology necessitates innovation in process development scale-up and design. As a consequence, there is the need to design new, as well as to improve existing, processes. An integral and cost intensive part of these processes is associated with downstream processing for product isolation and purification.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND
The course covers fundamental principles of downstream processing with practical examples and case studies to illustrate the problems and solutions faced by the practitioner. It is intended to provide both insight into and an overview of downstream processing for individuals actively engaged in process research and development, as well as those who manage and innovate in the biochemical process industry. Increasingly, scientists and engineers engaged in fermentation and cell culture development attend the course to better understand the context of the whole process. Attendees include:

* Engineers and scientists interested in design, economics, validation optimization and scale-up of biochemical product recovery;
* Protein biochemists and chemists involved in design of recovery processes;
*Managers responsible for biochemical process development;
* Entrepreneurs, attorneys, and business leaders wanting an overview and insight into biochemical manufacturing.

Fermentation Technology

July 29 - August 2, 2019

Fermentation Technology is the longest-run course in the MIT Professional Education catalog, having been offered continuously for more than 40 years. This course emphasizes the application of biological and engineering principles to problems involving microbial, mammalian, and biological/biochemical systems. The aims of the course are to review fundamentals and provide an up-to-date account of current knowledge in biological and biochemical technology. The lectures will emphasize and place perspectives on biological systems with industrial practices.

This course has made some major additions, modifications, and revisions in the course topics and course contents over the past couple of years. In recognition of the increasing number of attendees from non-pharmaceutical industries, we are rebalancing the course to provide equal emphasis on mammalian and microbial technologies. More than half of the lecturers are currently working in industry or have industrial experience.

The course is intended for engineers, biologists, chemists, microbiologists, and biochemists who are interested in the areas of biological systems in prokaryotic and eukaryotic hosts. It is desirable that individuals enrolled be familiar with some of the general aspects of modern biology, genetics, biochemical engineering, and biochemistry. Some general knowledge of mathematics is also desirable for dealing with the engineering aspects of the course.

Crisis Management and Business Continuity

July 29 - August 2, 2019

Preparing for a crisis is not a luxury; it is a necessity. You know the odds are high that your company will suffer a disaster or crisis at some point. You cannot say you weren't ready; today's extreme public and government scrutiny demand that you should have been prepared.

MIT's "Crisis Management & Business Continuity" will help prepare you for the inevitable.

This comprehensive course provides up-to-date assessments and knowledge on issues that affect you - terrorism, pandemic, cyber security, communications, news media - from the experts involved with these efforts. You will have the opportunity to interact with these lecturers and with peers from industry and government.

By the end of the course, you will have the tools, knowledge, and understanding to benchmark, assess, and improve your business continuity, disaster recovery, and crisis management program. This includes the Course Manual (print and/or e-files), templates, and current articles. You will gain valuable contacts, have plenty of networking opportunities, and acquire insights for immediate implementation.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND
This course is for the Business Continuity, Disaster Recovery, Emergency Management, and Crisis Management practitioner or responder as well as for the executive who oversees these disciplines. Other staff who would benefit from this course include corporate executives, directors, and staff from IT/MIS, Environment Health & Safety, Risk Management, Public Relations, Human Resources, and Security. This course is also suited for federal, state, and local government officials and Emergency Managers.

Both novices and experienced personnel will benefit greatly from this course. If you cannot go, tell your director/executive so he/she can attend to better understand your complex profession.
