    Using imaging to optimise bioengineering processes

BioIM: Bioengineering and Imaging

Researchers observe mass transport in bioprocesses and tissues from an engineering perspective. The aim is to improve the production of innovative pharmaceuticals – e.g. on the basis of stem cells or viruses. To this end, the LOEWE research cluster BioIM makes use of innovative imaging procedures which provide insight into the production process. These methods should lead to automatic, reproducible procedures that guarantee highly purified and extensive production of medicinal products.

From LOEWE research cluster to partnership in the LOEWE Centre for Insect Biotechnology and Bioresources

Since 2014, BioIM’s researchers have continued their work as partners of the LOEWE research centre for Insect Biotechnology and Bioresources. The researchers will have particular responsibility for developing and optimising procedures that allow molecules from bioresources to be used in medicine or industry.
