Research Division Biochemical Engineering





Our Vision:

We want to build bridges between the “omics” sciences, process development and scale up for industrially relevant processes for biopharmaceuticals, secondary metabolites and sustainable technologies. Be the world-leading research group in efficient and scalable bioprocess development for safe, economic and ecologic bioproducts through interdisciplinary thinking!

Our Mission:

Method development for efficient and scientifically based bioprocess development

Cornerstones of Activities:

  • Science based methods for quantitative bioprocess development
  • From data to knowledge, scalable
  • From biorefinery to biopharmaceuticals
  • From process understanding to engineered strains and products
  • From understanding single unit operations to integrated processes

Our Tools:

  • Quality by Design principles – Why processing
  • Dynamics
  • Real time sensors, soft sensors, simulation and automation
  • Data exploitation, using first principles
  • Mechanistic modelling
