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). The database we built on the catabolism of aromatics can be found here

 

MGG publication list is available here.
