About the Group

Our group focuses on the development of technology platforms based on bioprocesses and synthetic biology that generate new applications, new products and new production systems. Our main research lines are: a) Design of bioprocesses, b) novel technologies for bioseparation, c) technologies for measurement and early detection and d) synthetic biology.

The bioprocess line focuses primarily on the design, implementation and scaling of unique biotechnological processes for products with commercial potential. The objective of the research line of novel technologies for bioseparation is to generate new strategies for recovery and purification that result in new platforms and products (proteins, enzymes, cells, etc.). The development of technologies for early detection involves the design and use of the micro-devices process for the creation of measurement systems. The research line of synthetic biology focuses on generating unique microbial production systems for obtaining high-value products.
