Bioprocess engineering
Creating sustainable solutions for a better world

We focus on creating sustainable solutions for a better world. From producing desirable products to designing and optimising processes to manufacture bioproducts at scale, our research isn’t just focused on today’s problems – it confronts tomorrow’s too.

Focus areas

Biopharmaceuticals
Combining chemical engineering design and biology to enable the scalable manufacture of vaccines and biopharmaceuticals.
Bioproducts
Biological production of biodegradable plastics, fertilisers, biofuels, and healthier and tastier food/beverages for the betterment of society.
Metabolic models
Innovative design and biomanufacturing through engineering living cells to treat environmental wastes or produce a wide range of valuable products.
