University Erlangen-Nürnberg — Chair of Bioprocess Engineering
The research focus of the Chair of Bioprocess Engineering is in the field of industrial biotechnology. Here, microorganisms or enzymes are used as biocatalysts to produce (fine) chemicals, agricultural and pharmaceutical precursors, food and feed, energy sources and innovative materials. This research focus is represented by the working groups Biocatalysis and Fermentation as well as Nanobiotechnology. The chair’s research portfolio is complemented by the areas of aquatic biotechnology and tissue engineering.
