Microbial Biosynthesis

In the lab for microbial biosynthesis we are interested in all aspects of these natural products. We work on identifying new natural products with pharmaceutical potential; by studying single enzyme encoded in biosynthetic gene cluster, we work towards a better understanding of how these natural products are constructed; through a chemical biology approach we attempt to identify their molecular target and mode-of-action; and importantly, we invest time in optimizing their production and aim for pilot scale production of the most promising compounds.

We always have projects for curious and ambitious students at both bachelor and master level. If you are interested write us an email or stop by.
