The BIFP is a three week observational and hands-on fellowship program where selected instructors reside in Winston–Salem, North Carolina, during June, for an immersion in NC Bioscience; educational institutions, training facilities, laboratories, classrooms, and industrial and education sites.
In this workshop, participants will be introduced to experiments and techniques used in the biopharmaceutical industry to prevent microbial contamination of products, and biochemical assays that test for identity, purity and potency of the drug substance and product. Microbiological QC activities will include endotoxin testing, molecular and biochemical approaches to microbe detection and identification, and environmental monitoring.
Supported by the National Science Foundation's Advanced Technological Education (NSF ATE) program, HI-TEC is a national conference on advanced technological education where secondary and postsecondary educators, counselors, industry professionals, trade organizations, and technicians can update their knowledge and skills.
More than 350 microbiology and biology educators will gather at the ASM Conference for Undergraduate Educators (ASMCUE) August 1–4, 2019 in Tysons, VA, for an engaging four-day conference. Educators come from a wide range of institutions – from community colleges to international universities – to fully immerse themselves in biological sciences.
