Qiang’s research interests are in the area of bioprocessing. He has intensive experience in various types and scales of fermentations and fermentation development. He is now heading of IMRC work in the department on ultra scale down of recombinant E. coli fermentation and links between upstream and downstream bioprocessing. His most recent work focuses on the product quality attributes during mAb bioprocessing using ultra scale down models. In the past, he had spent three years investigating the events of oxidative stress in fungal fermentations for his PhD at University of Strathclyde before moved to Oxford University, where he spent another two years as a postdoctoral researcher working on the bioprocessing of ligonocellulosic material to generate high value products employing strict anaerobes.
