The overall scientific goal of the application-oriented research college iProcess is to develop the process engineering basics to use fungi and cyanobacteria as production organisms for pharmaceutically active substances. In particular, models are to be developed that are required for the design of the basic operations in process engineering. These models are to be developed in every stage of the entire process chain from cultivation in bioreactors to product separation and innovations are to be generated in the following areas: construction and (hydrodynamic) optimization of the reaction systems, process control strategies during cultivation (growth bodies, nutrient media supply), separation of the biomass and processing of recyclables.
