				October 22-24, 1997
		American Type Culture Collection (ATCC), Rockville, MD

This three-day introductory course covers methods and strategies and
special problems associated with the recovery and purification of proteins
>From various biological sources.

Lectures will include an overview of the recovery and purification
process, separation of biomass from broth, centrifugation, tangential flow
filtration, cell disintegration, protein precipitation, chromatography of
proteins (ion exchange, affinity, hydrophobic gel filtration),
optimization of purification schemes and scale-up. Laboratory sessions
will include tangential flow filtration, and protein separation
implementing gel filtration and ion exchange chromatography using
Pharmacia Biopilot systems.

Special attention will be given to the following topics: purification of
proteins for clinical use, protein refolding and judgment of the purity
level of the protein. In addition, a case study session which will include
discussion of several protein purification schemes will be conducted.

Pharmacia Bioprocess Division will be associated with the lectures and
laboratory work.

Faculty: Yossi Shiloach, Ph.D. (Workshop Director), Head, Biotechnology
