Marie Gorwa-Grauslund

 

Marie Gorwa-Grauslund, is professor at Applied Microbiology since 2009. She obtained a PhD in Molecular and Cellular Genetics in 1996 from INSA (National Institute of Applied Sciences) in Toulouse, France. After a post-doctoral fellowship at the Research Centre of Lesaffre in Marcq en Baroeul, France on the development of stress-tolerant yeast, she integrated the division of Applied Microbiology. MGG is responsible for the course Metabolic Engineering

 

 

MGG is heading a group on microbial metabolic engineering. Current projects involve developing pentose-fermenting and inhibitor-tolerant Saccharomyces cerevisiae (yeast) for the production of bioethanol and other bulk chemicals of interest as well as understanding and improving stereo-selective whole cell biocatalysis. More recently, the potential of bioconverting lignin components into high value compounds is also investigated (www.lignin.lu.se).

 

MGG publication list is available here.
