CMaT graduate students enroll in a new CMaT-designed courses and complete mentored research experiences focused on cell manufacturing barriers as part of a program designed to train them in the key skill sets prioritized by our industry and clinical “good manufacturing practices” partners.
Below are examples of curriculum development and course modifications from our CMaT REM Instructor Participants based on their time in CMaT labs

Barry Bates, Atlanta Technical College
BSCI 1220 Fundamentals of Biomanufacturing: This course was modified to replicate upstream and downstream processing using yeast cells as a model and a bioreactor. Students will learn how to monitor growth conditions and product purifications. The course already has cGMP, cGLP, and cGDocP instruction as part of the curriculum.
BSCI 2230: Methods of Protein Analysis: This course will be offered in the spring 2021 semester and will incorporate a focus on CAR T-cells, iPSCs, Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSC) and antibodies for disease therapies and introduction to immunocytochemistry.
BSCI 2250 Integrative Biology: The cell culture component of this course will introduce 2-D culture of MSCs to learn complexities and challenges associated with this cell type. Additionally, students will also be introduced to hydrogels to understand how this technology can be used for large-scale manufacturing and 3-D cell culture.
