Shana Swart Represents CeBER at the International Conference on Biocatalysis 2018
The 9th International Conference on Biocatalysis took place from 26th – 30th of August in Hamburg, Germany, where one of CeBER’s PhD Students, Shanna Swart, received a Biocat Conference Grant to present her poster. This biannual conference is a hub for representatives from both academia and industry who are involved in the rapidly evolving fields of biocatalysis and industrial biotechnology. Bio-based products are already finding application in food, feed, chemical, pharmaceutical and cosmetic industries and this conference facilitated the practical transferal of knowledge from highly recognised biologists, biochemists, chemists and engineers. This multidisciplinary approach is key in the developing bioeconomy which is expected to create new processes, products and job opportunities.
