Chemistry based on biological systems...

Biopharmaceuticals are medical drugs produced by application of genetic engineering and biotechnology methods. They are large biopolymers for therapeutic or in vivo diagnostic purposes, recommending a high demand of process control.

Processes are the product of the future

Because of the enormous number of large molecules with their inherent complexity, process development, optimization, and control are much more important than a patent molecule.

The key is the development of an engineering methodology based on standardized and well-characterized parts. “The consequences of synthetic biology will be as great as the development of chemical engineering from alchemy, with enormous and as perhaps unimaginable implications for medicine.” (Quelle: MIT)

The program combines essential engineering methods for process optimization and intensification with a state of the art laboratory work bench.
