Department of Biochemical Engineering
Our excellent international reputation derives from a shared passion to understand how life science discoveries can be converted into commercially viable products on a truly global scale.
Dr Sunny Bains has been promoted to the post of Principle Teaching Fellow following her leadership of the Integrated Engineering Programme (IEP) Communications & Teaching agenda, and also for her engineering engagement activities. This is recognition of the strong impact Sunny has made since joining UCL Biochemical Engineering two years ago and we warmly congratulate her for her achievement.

Andrea has been working on the recently-launched kompAsTM commercialisation of ultra scale-down at UCL Biochemical Engineering, but we’re very pleased to share the good news that last month she has been made a lecturer in bioseparations (Downstream Processing) here in UCL Biochemical Engineering. Andrea will continue work on kompAsTM through knowledge transfer activities, lead the research and development of next generation ultra scale-down technologies and the wider area of bioseparations for primary recovery or downstream processing.

EngD Student Sarah Slack has won the People's Choice award at this year's 3 Minute Thesis (3MT) competition at UCL. Sarah was recently involved in the BBC's Contagion project and TV show, and her 3MT, titled "Flu Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope," was given an award by the audience in a vote at the competition on 25 June. We're pleased to say that this is the third year in a row that UCL Biochemical Engineering students have won awards for sharing their enthusiasm about their postdoctoral research projects in this competition.
