Title: Overproduction and Scale-up Studies of Recombinant Microbial Enzymes for Biofuels and Bioactive Molecules

Speaker: Prof. Dr. Byong H. Lee, McGill University

Date: May 6, 2014, 10 am

Venue: Meeting Room, Biofuels Institute

 

    Dr. Byong H. Lee is a full Professor of McGill University, Canada. He is also the Distinguished Professor of Jiangnan University and the Hononary Professor of Changchun University. Prof. Lee has published more than 180 peer-reviewed papers and 21 books/chapters. He has have been recognized as an internationally renowned champion in enzyme and microbial technology and their commercial applications. He has focused on fermentation and biotechnology research and education in enzyme technology and molecular microbiology. The specific components of my research pertain to the molecular and biochemical characterization as well as scale up of the production of probiotic and other enzymes in order to: (i) produce bioactive compounds, and (ii) develop health promoting probiotics (cholesterol reducing, anticancer, fat reducing, etc).
