The course of Biopharmaceutical Process covers materials such as the biological drug’s originations, their properties, structures, applications, manufacturing principles, technological process and production methods. With the rapid development of life science, the amount and types of biological drugs keep increasing. As a result, we added new contents to our courses in order to catch up with industry changes. We created a three-level progressive teaching method where the three levels corroborate each other. We help students gain the ability to understand basic principles, the ability to apply, and the ability to innovate and conduct scientific research. We also reformed the teaching method by adding lab examples and enabling online learning. The multi-faceted approach improves students' comprehensive ability and innovation desires. It also prepares our students to better meet the increasing demand of the biopharmaceutical industry.
