Research activity couples life science expertise in microbiology and biocatalysis to engineering skills covering different aspects of fluid mechanics, chemical engineering and downstream product recovery.

This cascade of competences allows us to tackle all levels of knowledge in biotechnological applications.


The laboratory is structured in 3 scientifics domains:



Correct integration of the different levels of investigation opens new fields of study maintaining both basic science input and technological relevance in the domain of biotechnology. The unit couples experimental data with state of the art technology to advanced modeling techniques to unravel the complex interactions which occur in bioprocesses.
