The Barnett Institute is internationally recognized as a premier center for advanced training in chemical analysis. The Institute's focus on "real life" applications rewards students for working independently and creatively, motivated by real demand and significant impact for their work. Students are encouraged to develop a broad base of knowledge and keep ahead of trends in the field. They are trained to think analytically and to understand the complexity of biological samples.
The Path to Success
The Institute's entrepreneurial approach and commitment to excellence has trained over 300 students to become leaders in industry and academia worldwide. Many have attained prominent positions, including Presidents and Vice-Presidents of major companies, and heads of academic, industrial, and government departments all over the world. This network of loyal alumni maintain close contact with the Institute, to share emerging opportunities and methods. The Alumni have established an endowed Alumni Graduate Fellowship, awarded each year to an outstanding final year doctoral student.
State of the Art Protein Analysis and Regulatory Science is a four-day "short course" that provides attendees with current and future methods to comprehensively characterize biopharmaceutical products. Offered through the Center for Advanced Regulatory Analysis at the Barnett Institute, the course focuses on protein structure, types of modification, and the potential role of these changes on protein function. Methods of characterization include liquid chromatography (LC), capillary electrophoresis (CE), LC/MS (mass spectrometry) and CE/MS. A full day is devoted to the latest approaches to carbohydrate analysis. The final day focused on protein characterization in a regulatory environment.
