Ioannis’ research interests lie in the area of microbial fermentation. During his studies, Ioannis extensively examined the production of recombinant enzymes and the physiological aspects of oxidative stress related to product formation in mycological and bacterial cell cultures. In his post-doctoral role, Ioannis retains a focus on the expression of heterologous proteins which are industrially relevant. Ioannis has worked at both small (1L) and medium (30L) scale to investigate the potential to scale up resultant production processes. This activity is part of a GSK-UCL Centre of Excellence programme in Bioprocessing and Ioannis’s sponsoring department at GSK (GlaxoSmithKline) is BiopharmR&D. Ioannis is investigating new industrial cultivation processes for the production of small protein-engineered molecules in microbial expression systems and helps supervise a team of Engineering Doctorate researchers involve in related whole bioprocess projects.
