The training resources have been created to provide learners with background theory on upstream bioprocessing for vaccines, cell and gene therapies and feature complimentary bioreactor demonstration videos. Five different bioreactor platforms have been included in the demonstrations focusing on system set-up, operation and endpoint.

"We are delighted to support the efforts of the Advanced Therapy Skills Training Network initiative by offering UCL Biochemical Engineering expertise to individuals looking to work in the advanced therapy biomanufacturing sector and support the next generation of bioprocessing professionals. These videos build on UCL’s established teaching and training track-record across the spectrum of Higher Education and Post-Experience learning and is underpinned by our world-leading research activity." Professor Gary Lye, Head of Department, UCL Biochemical Engineering, November 2021

A number of UCL Biochemical Engineering experts were involved in the creation of the training including:

The UCL Biochemical Engineering training series, alongside a number of other resources, can be accessed on the Advanced Therapies Skills Training Network platform.

Supported by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) and Innovate (IUK), the Advanced Therapies Skills Training Network (ATSTN) has been developed as a national initiative to drive growth across the advanced therapies and vaccine manufacturing industry, through offering access to training facilities and an online training platform.
