BioPlan Associates' Faiz Kermani PhD

Dr Faiz Kermani, Advisory Board: Has helped establish the "Global Health Education Foundation" (GHEF), a not-for-profit healthcare charity to improve educational resources and training for healthcare professionals in developing countries.
At least 1.3 billion people worldwide lack access to the most basic healthcare. The new non-profit foundation, Global Health Education Foundation, aims to tackle such issues. As President of GHEF, Dr Kermani is supporting the R&D focus of the charity to reduce health disparities among developing countries. In particular, the lack of appropriate educational resources and training opportunities for healthcare professionals. http://www.globalhef.org

Biopharmaceutical Expression Systems & Genetic Engineering Technologies: Current and Future Manufacturing Platforms

New expression systems and recent improvements available for current systems have the potential to revolutionize the biopharmaceutical industry!Lower costs and efficiencies of newer expression systems are driving these changes.

This book provides you with the information you need to make the shift to increased productivity. As reflected by currently marketed products, since the advent of genetic engineering in the 1970s, there has been little basic change in the technologies used for commercial-scale manufacture of biopharmaceutical products.

Nearly all current products are manufactured using much the same old, familiar technologies – primarily using Esherichia coli (E. coli bacterium), Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) cells and the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae (S. cerevisiae) as hosts – technologies invented in the 1970s and commercialized in the 1980s.
