CHEM ENG 7066 - Advanced Technologies in Biopharmaceutical Processing

Career: Postgraduate Coursework
Units: 3
Term: Semester 1
Campus: North Terrace

Biopharmaceutical engineering is one the most promising areas of development from both the scientific and technology viewpoints. This is because this discipline develops at the intersection of physics, chemistry, biology and engineering. It is expected that biopharmaceutical products play a major role in facilitating therapeutic strategies for the treatment of some of the most important diseases and conditions of the 21st century such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and various types of cancer. Moreover, thanks to developments in this area, novel diagnostic and medical devices are available to the general public. Some of the emerging research areas within this field include the discovery and production of novel pharmacological molecules, more effective gene therapies, pharmacogenomics and personalized medicine. This course explores the routes for the implementation of some of these developments going from the lab to the full clinical translation. The general objective of this course is therefore to provide a conceptual and fundamental framework to comprehensively understand each component of a biopharmaceutical development such that students can consider new value propositions to address the upcoming healthcare and industry challenges.
