Building on existing content from LyoHUB’s “Lyo101” in-person course, this project created eight online learning modules, together with assessment tools and instructions for a virtual laboratory exercise, to meet the existing industry need.
The new online course blends voice-over PowerPoint presentations, video recordings of lecturers and of lyophilization equipment, and machine graded assessments. The course was beta-tested by LyoHUB members to finalize and improve the course before its release. Module topics include:
The program is intended for operators, scientists, and engineers with limited lyophilization experience. In addition, some components of the program will be accessible to non-technical personnel.
Final 8-module course, featuring video recordings by leading experts in lyophilization, a virtual laboratory exercise and an assessment, fulfills an unmet need in online educational programs for workforce training in pharmaceutical lyophilization.
The online modules have been posted in open-access form on the pharmaHUB website.
