Research

We study, engineer, and use microbes, microbial communities, and molecules that microbes produce, to address global sustainability challenges. Meeting a growing population’s needs for chemicals, polymers, materials, energy and food, requires creating new bio-based industries and changing old industries’ petroleum-dependent technologies that pollute the environment and drive global warming.

Please check out the 3 research areas, we have chosen to focus on in our work towards the green transition.

To reach our aim, people is our biggest asset. Under Education you can read about our work fostering the next generation of biotechnology talent who are going to shape a greener future.
