We work in three areas:
- Synthetic Biology: We work on the fundamentals of designing novel multi-enzyme reaction networks for the production of high-value-added chemicals in vivo and in vitro.
- Integrated Processes: We work on the design of novel bioprocess schemes for the manufacturing of novel fine chemical and pharmaceutical products. The main projects involve concepts to integrate separation and production steps to overcome problems of reaction equilibrium or product inhibition.
- Technology Development & Discovery: Research of the TDD group is focused on conception and development of technologies for the removal of bottlenecks typically encountered in biotechnology in the course of process development and bioproduct discovery.
