Main Focus

Major Research Interests  


Research of the Bioprocess Engineering Group focuses on animal cell culture technology, downstream processing of vaccines and biologicals as well as mathematical modeling of bioprocesses and cellular systems.    

The following topics are covered in close cooperation with research groups of the Max Planck Institute and the Department of Bioprocess Engineering at the Otto-von-Guericke University Magdeburg:  

  • Optimization and scale-up of viral-based production processes
  • Chromatographic methods for the purification of viral antigens
  • Mathematical modeling, monitoring and control of bioprocesses
  • Mathematical modeling of cellular systems with a focus on mammalian cell growth, virus-host cell interaction, plasmid segregation and microbial growth dynamics
  • Quantitative analysis of cellular metabolic and regulation networks
  • Proteomics, characterization of protein structure (glycosylation)
