UC San Diego Extension’s Microbial Fermentation Workshop   —   August 16-18, 2017   —   San Diego, CA

Developed in partnership with UC San Diego’s Division of Biological Sciences, this 3-day workshop is designed to provide a deep dive into bioreactor principles and bioprocess development. You will be equipped with the fundamental knowledge and practical skills needed to design, develop, optimize, control, scale-up, analyze, and troubleshoot your fermentation processes. Five case studies allow attendees to practice what they have learned. A “Fermentation Firing Line” provides a lively, open ended forum for attendees to pose questions to the instructional team on any fermentation-related subject.

Workshop Objectives:

  • Understand the biological principles behind microbial metabolism, growth, and genetic modification
  • Review the principles behind bioreactor design, operation, monitoring control, and scale up
  • Learn how to improve fermentation performance through statistical design and analysis of experiments
  • Learn a structured approach to downstream bioprocess design
  • Learn how to carry out economic analysis of bioprocess operating and capital costs
  • Solve real-world, industrial fermentation problems

Who Should Attend?
The workshop is intended for scientific, engineering, and business professionals with some prior fermentation-related experience.
