Expert in Fermentation Development, Optimization, and Production of Recombinant Proteins

Expert ID: 729523 Delaware, USA

Request Expert

Experience in aerobic and anaerobic fermentation and working with various microorganisms including bacteria,
yeast and fungi. Fermentation optimization to improve yield and productivity for production of pharmaceutical
proteins, enzymes, fine chemicals and bio fuels. This was accomplished by media optimization, process
conditions, and fed batch operation. Experience in extractive fermentation as a way to ferment immiscible and
toxic substrates or products.

Scale up and technology transfer:
Projects include cellulase production by fungi, production of recombinant proteins and enzmes and production of
bacterial cellulose by recombinant bacteria. Technology transfer between various groups in US and abroad..

Familiar with various aspects of genetic engineering tools and possibilities, down stream processing and process
economics and work closely with experts that represent these disciplines.
Biotransformation to produce fine chemicals using immobilized cells and enzymes.

Scale up of cellulase production by fungi.Scale up of new chemical by recombinant bacteria.
