EPSRC Manufacturing Fellowship Award

11 July 2012

The Department of Biochemical Engineering has won one of only four pilot EPSRC Manufacturing Fellowships awarded to Dr Ajoy Velayudhan to work with Prof Nigel Titchener-Hooker. Over the five year appointment it is hoped to establish, in the UK, a new area of interdisciplinary research in the rational design of processes for the cost-effective manufacture of therapeutic proteins. Dr Velayudhan has an established academic as well as industrial track record in the USA and will be joining UCL in the Autumn. The success is particularly important to the EPSRC Centre for Innovative Manufacturing in Emergent Macromolecular Therapies as it increases the breadth of the studies that can be explored and the range of industry partners who will join the consortium.

He will join us in August.
