University College London in collaboration with The Centre for Process Innovation has announced the relaunch of its Industrial Biotechnology: Biocatalysis through to Synthetic Biology MBI® course on 18 – 20th April 2016 at UCL, London.
The three day course will introduce options for integrating biocatalysis into chemical manufacturing processes, and also explore successful examples of biocatalyst design, process operation and biorefining for sustainable manufacturing, enabling participants to:
- Strengthen your knowledge in biocatalysis, and whole biotransformation processes, from fermentation to product.
- Understand the range of chemical conversions accessible by biocatalysis, and examples of successful industrial applications.
- Discover the industrial potential of synthetic biology.
- Explore the challenges and options for large scale biocatalysis.
Academics and senior industrial experts will lead delegates through a series of lectures supported by industrially relevant workshops and case studies and explore best practises. In addition there will be excellent networking opportunities with your peers, sector leaders and subject matter experts to discuss challenges and best practises in the industrial biotechnology space.
Confirmed speakers for 2016 include:
Paul Dalby, UCL
Dan Noakes – CPI
Peter Sutton – GSK
Katie Chong – European Bioenergy Research Institute
Gary Lye, UCL
Frank Baganz, UCL
John Ward, UCL
Brenda Parker – UCL
