MONT 421 3/20 Course Description: Specific topics to be discussed include gel electrophoresis and western blotting, enzyme linked immunosorbent assays (ELISAs), protein assays, various types of chromatography (size exclusion, anion/cation, hydrophobic interaction) along with biophysical methods for size characterization, chromatographic approaches for protein purification, and various biophysical/biochemical assays to study protein-protein interactions (e.g. ELISA based assays, surface plasmon resonance, quartz crystal microbalance). Industrial, regulatory, and practical aspects will be discussed as well. This class will be of interest to graduate and senior undergraduate BME students looking to broaden their knowledge and skill set in applied and analytic biochemistry, with potential applications in numerous areas of BME research. Additionally these skills are useful and relevant industrially, as pharmaceutical companies increasingly focus their research efforts to develop novel effective protein therapeutic products. This course may be used to meet a BME Elective in the Biomaterials & Tissue Engineering Concentration.
