Cambridge Healthtech Institute Training Seminars offer real-life case studies, problems encountered and solutions applied, and extensive coverage of the basic science underlying each topic. Experienced Training Seminar instructors offer a mix of formal lectures, interactive discussions and activities to help attendees maximize their learning experiences. These immersive trainings will be of value to scientists from industry and academic research groups who are entering new fields – and to those working in supporting roles that will benefit from an in-depth briefing on a specific aspect of the industry.

Tuesday 19 March & Wednesday 20 March

Day 1: 08:25 - 17:30 | Day 2: 8:30 - 12:20

TS1: Design of Experiments for Bioprocess Analysis

The aim of this training seminar is to provide the attendees with an introduction to the Design of Experiments (DoE) methods applied to analysis and optimization of bioprocesses. It focuses on the application of DoE methods using lectures, JMP statistical software (SAS Institute, NC) and case studies. The case studies, which provide real data, focus on microbial fermentation, chromatography and pharmaceutical product formulation. Attendees will receive a practical overview of the following topics: basic statistical concepts for DoE; how to use factorial, fractional factorial, and response surface designs for the characterization and optimization of bioprocesses; how to interpret the output of experimental design software (normal probability, interaction and contour plots or estimated coefficients tables for factorial or surface response models).
