On-Site Training Programs
The BARDA/USU flu vaccine manufacturing program developed and delivered two on-site, hands-on training courses in 2012. Both programs were specifically on cell-based flu vaccine production with emphasis on scale-up strategies, downstream processing and regulatory issues. The programs were developed in close collaborations with BARDA scientists, DCVM site managers and industrial collaborators. The two DCVM sites that expressed interest and were approved by BARDA were the Biofarma of Indonesia and Vabiotech on Vietnam. More on-site programs are planned for 2013.
