Laboratory of Biotechnology Materials

Director: Mariano Graselli

  • Study and development of new functionalized materials based on natural polymers (cellulose, alginate, chitosan) and synthetic (PE, PP, PET, polysulfides, polyether), proteins and nucleic acids obtained from natural or recombinant sources.
  • Techniques for immobilization of polymers and proteins (chemical modifications and changes through physical media).
  • Recombinant protein production by fermentation of bacterial cultures.
  • Purification of natural and recombinant proteins.
