CHAIN launches a new grant funded research project

July 31, 2015

CHAIN has been awarded £180K from InnovateUK for a project focused on the production of high-value chiral chemicals using fermentation at costs competitive with current chemical synthesis. This 12 month feasibility project starts on the 1st August 2015 and uses synthetic biology and microbial fermentation of renewable feedstocks to address key environmental and sustainability concerns. Success on this project will enable us to exemplify our anaerobic chassis and fermentation platform for advanced Biotechnology products and applications.
