Laboratory of Enzyme Technology

The Laboratory is engaged with undergraduate teaching on several courses (Analytical Biotechnology, Enzyme Biotechnology, Molecular Enzymology and Clinical & Pharmaceutical Biotechnology), whereas its research activities focus mainly on enzyme biotechnology and enzymology, encompassing (i) downstream processing for the isolation and purification of enzymes, (ii) enzyme immobilization for biosensor development, (iii) protein engineering and enzyme redesign, (iv) design and study of enzyme inhibitors with pharmaceutical and therapeutic potential, and synthetic biomimetic ligands applicable to affinity chromatography, (v) omics technologies, and (vi) enzyme-based biotransformations for the production of high-added-value compounds.
