Learning outcomes

The course aims to give the students notions of the use of recombinant systems for the production of biopharmaceuticals. In particular, the course will be focused on the biomolecular techniques used for the expression of recombinant proteins in prokaryotic and eukaryotic systems and the downstream processing and purification for their large-scale production. The different platforms used for the recombinant expression will be studied and compared. The different US and EU normative procedures for biopharmaceutical commercialization will be evaluated and compared. Specific examples of biopharmaceutical produced in recombinant systems and their therapeutic applications like for vaccines and antibodies will be discussed and studied.
