Biotransformations II: Science to Industrial Application

24 March 2023 09:30-17:00, London, United Kingdom

The RSC Biotechnology Group welcomes you to this exciting one-day symposium, a follow-up to a meeting of the same title run in 2017. This second meeting in the series will highlight recent achievements, future challenges and current trends in the use of biotransformations and biocatalysis in the industrial biotechnology sector. The focus is on the discovery, modification and industrial application of novel enzymes for biocatalysis, as well as analytical and process engineering, synthetic biology, computational biology, biochemistry, microbiology, and chemistry, that are being harnessed to deliver new biocatalysts for the synthesis of chemical products.

Confirmed speakers:
We will also be selecting at least two additional early career speakers from our abstract submissions. 

Prof. Don Hilvert: ETH Zurich
High-throughput engineering of biosynthetic assembly lines

Prof. Ross Anderson: Bristol University

Dr. Sarah Barry: Kings College London

Prof. Gideon Grogan: York University
Unspecific Peroxygenases: Expression, Application and Catalytic Promiscuity

Prof. Helen Hailes:  University College London
Enzymatic single-step reactions and the construction of biocatalytic cascades

Dr. Holly Reeve: CEO and Co-founder, HydRegen Limited
Biocatalytic hydrogenation: robust biotechnologies for sustainable chemical manufacturing
The Royal Society of Chemistry

The Royal Society of Chemistry, Burlington House, Piccadilly, London, W1J 0BA, United Kingdom

Organised by
Prof Paul A. Dalby (University College London:, Prof Paul Race (University of Bristol), Dr Stephen Wrigley (Hypha Discovery Ltd), and Dr. Colin Bedford (University College London), under the auspices of the Royal Society of Chemistry Biotechnology Interest Group.

The Biotechnology Group is the focal point within the RSC for members who have an academic or industrial interest in the chemical aspects of biotechnology.

The Group has annually run conferences or symposia on a diverse range of topics, including Biotransformations, Natural Products, Stem Cell Therapies, Neurological Disorders, Proteomics, and Glycomics.
