About

The Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Biosustainability is a DTU research and innovation center established in 2011.

A wide range of significant products, from small molecules to large proteins, can be made using cells as production hosts or cell factories. These cell factories will impact chemical and biopharmaceutical production notably over the coming decades.

A dedicated research and development effort is required in order to identify commercially interesting compounds and to speed-up the strain design process.
