BIOPROCESS AND MOLECULAR ENGINEERING RESEARCH UNIT
The Bioprocess and Molecular Engineering Research Unit (BPMERU) provides industrial and scientific solutions using experimental, analytical, computational and industrial / bioprocessing techniques which are necessary when dealing with problems involving microbial biodiversity, functional foods, functional genomics, metabolic engineering, production of complex recombinant antibiotics from bacteria, transgenic plants and biosensor development.
To develop and enhance concepts, methods, tools, techniques, technologies and products using integrated approach encompassing biomolecular engineering to bioprocessing of biomolecules and bioenergy. To serve the biomolecular and bioprocessing-related stakeholders through courses, training, consultancy and collaborative research. To promote sustainable development through ethical practice of biomolecular and bioprocess engineering
BPMERU envisages to become a leading research entity in the area of biomolecular and bioprocess engineering with a unique strategic combination of complementary expertise from multidisciplinary fields, enabling research in the complete pipeline of biomolecules development and production for the benefit of mankind.
The objectives of our research unit are to develop new products, tools, conceptual methods and technologies using integrated approach involving both biological and certain aspects of engineering processes such as design, modeling, control and optimization to achieve a better understanding of the biological systems and to develop safe and quality products.
