As a sub-discipline of biotechnology and bioengineering, bioprocess engineering can be defined as application of engineering principles to biological systems in its broadest sense. Starting from microorganisms, plants, animal cells or cell components (enzymes etc.), this field comprises the design of processes and equipment needed to produce the intended end product, the optimization of production conditions and transferring the developed procedures to a large scale production, the design and optimization of up-stream and down-stream processes, the characterization and quality control of the end products. Academic staff working in this area:
