The MACS® Academy of the well-known biotechnology company, Miltenyi Biotec in Bergisch Gladbach, Germany, has been offering its successful, practice oriented seminars and training courses for more than six years. It was founded in order to pass on and preserve the know-how of the basic techniques, and to teach about the newest technological developments. The course program is directed towards people working in industrial, scientific and clinical environments. The training focuses on methods in the areas of cell biology research and cell therapy.
Modern and well–equipped seminar rooms and laboratories provide ideal conditions for acquiring knowledge in theory and practice. The participants learn how to optimize processes, solve biological questions using revolutionary approaches, and have the chance to try out innovative technologies. In the small international groups, led by skilled and well-qualified trainers and experts from Miltenyi Biotec’s R&D Department, individual and in-depth questions can be considered and clarified.
The training program offered by Miltenyi Biotec is not only limited to the German Headquarters. Since 2013, training is also available in the USA – in San Diego, CA.
