Making Biologic Medicines for Patients: The Principles of Biopharmaceutical Manufacturing - Massachusetts Institute of TechnologyedX
What you'll learn on the course
Humans have leveraged the power of cells for millennia to produce staples such as bread, cheese, beer and wine. Yet only recently have we begun to utilize cells as factories for the production of protein therapeutics. These biologic drugs are able to treat otherwise untreatable diseases. In this course, you will learn how these life saving medicines are made. We will connect the engineering fundamentals to real-world application by showing real pieces of biomanufacturing equipment in action and listening to experts describe real-world engineering challenges.
