  • Medical Device Validation Training for Professionals

    18 - 20 October 2017

    Berlin, Germany

    Medical Device Validation Training for Professionals Participants will learn how an effective Process Validation system is a critical requirement to the movement toward a risk-based approach to compliance and product safety. Also to be discussed is how to tackle process validation for medical device combination products. Issues to be covered include: •Learn how poor validation procedures and practices can lead to regulatory actions from regulators •Assurance of product quality derived from a compliant validation program •Learn how to improve process system knowledge and understanding •Learn methods for developing process validations and best practices •Understand the scope of regulations governing process validation and identify gaps •Develop a plan to rectify existing validation plans, protocols and reports •Learn how to implement and deploy a master validation plan Attendees are encouraged to bring examples of Process Validation issues/concerns that they would like to reviewed and discussed during the course. 2017-10-18 09:00:00 UTC 2017-10-20 15:00:00 UTC The Center for Professional Innovation & Education The Berlin Hilton, Berlin, Germany The Berlin Hilton Berlin Germany [] The Center for Professional Innovation & Education Regulatory AffairsQuality Assurance & ControlProcess DevelopmentAuditing & Compliance Engineering 20 workshops_and_courses first_come_first_served Process Validationproduct safetyMedical DeviceCFR 820ISO 13485
  • Water Purification Systems for Regulated Industries

    23 - 24 October 2017

    Berlin, Germany

    Water Purification Systems for Regulated Industries The course consists of interactive lectures, discussions, and imbedded exercises. Participants will also be placed in several real life situations where they complete a compliance review of a schematic process flow diagram, analyze failures using trend reports, critique a risk assessment, and perform a change control analysis including the impact of requested or proposed modifications. The course is designed to provide the attendee with a practical understanding of the following topics: •Basic water chemistry •Water quality selection criteria •EPA, EU, and WHO drinking water standards •The governing regulatory agencies with direct impact on water systems •Analytical water grades (1, 2, 3) and reagent water types (I, II, III, IV, with A, B & C subgroups) •Pharmacopeia water grades (Purified, Highly Purified, Water for Injection & Clean Steam) •Pretreatment component equipment - selection and operating principals •Final treatment options (reverse osmosis, vapor compression, single-effect and multiple-effect stills) •Opportunities for energy and water resource conservation •Point of use criteria such as temperature, location, time-of-day, and demand (GPM & GPD) •System design including materials of construction, generation, storage and distribution options •Trend reports (analysis, problem identification, predictive value) •Control systems, data historian, secure access, set points and alarms •Managing performance deviations and component failure •Direct and in-direct impact analysis •Quality by design including risk assessment •Instrument calibration for critical, non-critical, and informational only devices •Maintenance impacts to system performance, reliability, and validation •The importance of as-built documentation - user and field directed changes 2017-10-23 09:00:00 UTC 2017-10-24 17:00:00 UTC The Center for Professional Innovation & Education The Berlin Hilton, Berlin, Germany The Berlin Hilton Berlin Germany [] The Center for Professional Innovation & Education Regulatory AffairsQualityComplianceR&DValidationManufacturingMaintenanceEngineering 20 workshops_and_courses first_come_first_served water chemistryWater quality water systemsSystem design Pharmacopeia water grades Control systemsInstrument calibration
  • Multiple Sequence Alignment with Jalview and Protein Structure and Function Modelling

    14 - 15 May 2018

    Liverpool, United Kingdom

    Elixir node event
    Multiple Sequence Alignment with Jalview and Protein Structure and Function Modelling Date: Monday 14th to Tuesday 15th May 2018 Time: 9.00 to 17.00 Location: MSTC, Sherrington Building, University of Liverpool, L69 3BX Overview This two day hands-on training course is aimed at students and researchers who want to gain practical understanding of the tools and approaches for protein sequence, structure and function prediction and analysis. In day 1, participants will be introduced to Jalview - a free desktop application for the visualisation and comparative analysis of protein, DNA and RNA sequences. Jalview can integrate data from Ensembl, Uniprot, PDBe, Rfam and Pfam, and can access a range of tools for multiple sequence alignment, conservation analysis and secondary structure and disorder prediction, including the widely used JPred4. On the second day, participants will learn to use Jalview’s 3D structure visualisation capabilities in conjunction with UCSF Chimera, and take a whistle-stop tour of the methodologies and tools for prediction and analysis of Protein 3D structure and function. Participants are encouraged to bring their own protein analysis problems and time will be reserved at the end of day 2 for discussion.

  • Introduction to Python for Biologists

    12 - 16 August 2019

    Liverpool, United Kingdom

    Introduction to Python for Biologists Registration fee: £500 Places: 15 (first come, first served) Application deadline: 14th June 2019 DESCRIPTION Python is a dynamic, readable language that is a popular platform for all types of bioinformatics work, from simple one-off scripts to large, complex software projects. This workshop is aimed at complete beginners and assumes no prior programming experience. It gives an overview of the language with an emphasis on practical problem-solving, using examples and exercises drawn from various aspects of bioinformatics work. The workshop is structured so that the parts of the language most useful for bioinformatics are introduced as early as possible, and that students can start writing plausibly-useful programs after the first few sessions. After completing the workshop, students should be in a position to (1) apply the skills they have learned to tackling problems in their own research and (2) continue their Python education in a self-directed way. The instructor of the workshop is the Founder of Python for Biologists, Dr. Martin Jones. Format The workshop will take place over 5 days. Each day will consist of 2 half-day sessions, each consisting of a ~1 hour lecture followed by 2 hours of practical exercises. It is important that attendees attend each session as they will use examples and exercises that build on the materials from previous sessions. For more information and a detailed syllabus please see the following link: Who should attend This workshop is aimed at all researchers and technical workers with a background in biology who want to learn programming. The syllabus has been planned with complete beginners in mind. Requirements Attendees will require a level of biological and bioinformatics background so they can appreciate the examples and exercises (i.e. they should know what a protein accession number, BLAST report, and FASTA sequence is). Attendees will require the ability to us a text editor (e.g. nano, vim, or gedit). No previous programming knowledge is required. Attendees will use their own laptops during the workshop. Instructions for any software to be installed will be sent out prior to the course. If you are not sure if this course is suitable for you please do not hesitate to contact Dr Martin Jones ( Please fill in the following form ( if you would like to register for the Introduction to Python for Biologists workshop. Applicants will be asked to pay a registration fee of £500. After the application deadline (14th of June) or when all places are fill applicants will be asked to pay for the workshop. Once your fee is paid your place on the course will be confirmed. 2019-08-12 09:00:00 UTC 2019-08-16 17:00:00 UTC Centre for Genomic Research, University of Liverpool ( 126 Mount Pleasant, 126, Mount Pleasant, Liverpool, United Kingdom 126 Mount Pleasant, 126, Mount Pleasant Liverpool Merseyside United Kingdom L3 5SR University of Liverpool [] [] 15 workshops_and_courses [] pythonbioinformaticsprogrammingintrobeginner
