The Bioengineering Department and specifically the Group of Biochemistry from the Institut Químic de Sarrià- Ramon Llull University leaded by Prof. Antoni Planas is looking for two applicants interested in IEF-Marie Curie actions.

Topic I
The Marie Curie proposal is focused on enzyme engineering of glycosidases and glycosyltransferases as biocatalysts for complex carbohydrate structures.

Topic II
The Marie Curie proposal is focused on the metabolic engineering of E. coli and yeast microorganisms for the glycolipids production.

More information: Prof. Antoni Planas (antoni.planas@iqs.edu) and Dr. Magda Faijes (magda.faijes@iqs.edu)


Team members from Chemistry, Biochemistry, Biology and Biotecnology backgrounds have participated in a wide range of research projects with extensive knowledge in multiple technologies: protein engineering, directed evolution, biocatalysis, metabolic engineering and also carbohydrate synthesis.  Research projects of the Laboratory are focused on proteins/enzymes involved in glycobiology and are selected for its interest in the biomedical field and carbohydrate synthetic applications for food and health.
