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.
UCL Biochemical Engineering is always pleased to welcome a new member of the team, but with Afrin we are especially happy to be seeing one of our own graduates return to work with us. Afrin graduated in 2010 before going on to study an MSc in Biotechnology at Imperial College.

GE Healthcare has completed the acquisition of Puridify, a bioprocessing start-up that is developing a nanofiber-based platform purification technology for biopharmaceutical production. "The Puridify story started in 2008 with an engineering doctoral project (funded by the EPSRC CDT in Bioprocess Engineering Leadership) that was thought up by Prof Dan Bracewell (UCL Biochemical Engineering) and Prof Bob Stevens (STFC). The industrial applicability of the technology was intended from the outset and this supported the commercial opportunity which took its first steps with an initial patent filing in 2012…
