Nominator's project description

Trained as a chemical engineer, Professor Pfleger focuses on using metabolic engineering techniques to produce value-added fuels and chemicals. His research combines basic chemical engineering with synthetic biology and systems metabolic engineering for supporting bioeconomy. During his stay in Germany, Professor Pfleger aims to link his studies with further research on scaling-up and scaling-down to establish robust strains and bioprocesses.
