  • Competition Funded PhD Project (Students Worldwide)
    Competition Funded PhD Project (Students Worldwide)

Project Description

The manufacture of biopharmaceuticals, such as therapeutic proteins, is increasingly facing limitations due to insufficient performance of existing purification processes. There is an urgent need for new bioseparation resins and methods to overcome this biomanufacturing bottleneck. This project aims to develop an innovative and disruptive platform technology for designing and manufacturing tailor-made high-performance bioseparation resins, to enhance manufacturing of biopharmaceuticals. Bacterial cell factories will be designed to produce polymer spheres which densely display specific binding domains for purification of biopharmaceuticals.
