Animal Cell Technology Course 2022, 12th edition

Sept 18-22, 2022

Coordinators: Francesc Gòdia (UAB, Spain) and Paula Alves (IBET, Portugal)

After the interest received by the previous editions and the excellent feed-back from all the attendants, the 12th edition of the ACT course will be organized by the ESACT (European Society of Animal Cell Technology) again in 2022. ESACT is presenting this activity as one more contribution to the community involved in the use of animal cells in Biotechnology and Biomedicine.

A limited number of grants, covering the course fee are provided by ESACT. Applicants to the grants should indicate it in the course application, together with a motivation statement. Priority will be given to young PhD students from Academia. The course comprises lectures covering the main topics of Animal Cell Technology:

  • Cell line development
  • Cellular mechanisms
  • Genomics and proteomics
  • Post-translational modifications
  • Bioreactor scale-up, scale down and single use bioreactor
  • Downstream processing
  • Integrated bioprocess for cell based vaccines
  • Economical aspects of ACT bioprocesses
  • Integrated bioprocess for protein production
  • Integrated bioprocess for stem cells
  • Industrial perspectives of ACT

The program has slots dedicated to the preparation and presentation of case studies by participants, and discussion groups with the lecturers.

Confirmed speakers: Terry Papoutsakis (University Delaware, USA), Manuel Carrondo and Paula Alves (iBET, Portugal), Hansjörg Hauser (HZI, Germany), Francesc Gòdia (UAB, Spain), Stefanos Grammatikos (UCB Pharma SA, Belgium) Nicole Borth (BOKU Vienna, Austria) and Anne Tolstrup (AbtBioConsult, Denmark).
