We conduct practice-oriented research together with students, aimed at responsible and smart use of the living nature. We work closely with companies that support the same ambition.

Our research focuses, for example, on the production of biobased raw materials based on fermentation, the development of separation methods for full use of residual flows from agriculture and horticulture, the development of new medicines by adapting substances obtained from plants, the development of alternative test methods to replace animal experiments or on the design of methods and software that can make use the enormous amount of available (genetic) data.
