ATE Project Talks: NISTCHO Cells for Teaching Biomanufacturing
Event Date(s): Friday, March 22, 2024 - 01:00pm to 02:00pm EDT
Register by: Friday, March 22 2024
Welcome to the InnovATEBIO 2024 series of virtual ATE project talks. This series features leaders in biotechnology workforce education from across the US sharing their work on exciting projects funded by the National Science Foundation's Advanced Technological Education (ATE) program. The ATE program supports the education of technicians for the high-technology fields that drive our nation's economy.
Each talk will be 20 minutes, followed by 15 minutes for questions and discussion.
Learn about using NISTCHO Cells for Teaching Biomanufacturing (and undergraduate research)
Description: NISTCHO cells are a newly released recombinant cell line that produces an anti-RSV monoclonal antibody. The cell line was developed by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and MilliporeSigma and is available as a research grade test material (RGTM 10197). A lab-based curriculum has been developed to facilitate the use of the NISTCHO cell line in biomanufacturing courses and workforce development programs. Standard operating procedures, batch records and corresponding data will be shared for small scale NISTCHO growth and mAb production. Outcomes of undergraduate research projects on cryopreservation and stability studies will be discussed.
Speakers: Margaret Bryans, Montgomery County Community College, PA and Lori Kelman, Montgomery College Germantown, MD
