Institute of Bioprocess and Biosystems Engineering at the Hamburg University of Technology

Founded in 1986 by Prof. Dr.-Ing. Herbert Märkl, the institute has a long tradition and high reputation in research in bioprocess engineering. It is headed by Prof. Dr. An-Ping Zeng since 2006. Presently, about 30 staff members, mostly at Postdoc and PhD student levels, are working in an interdisciplinary environment. We develop new tools and concepts in Bioprocess Engineering and Systems Biology with applications in White and Red Biotechnologies and Synthetic Biotechnology. Our central theme: Engineering of the cell as a system and the bioproduction system as an integrated process.
