Next May 26th at 12 noon we will hold a new session of the seminar for newcomers in the auditorium.

The first speaker will be Dr. David Sanz , from the Biotechnological Processes Unit, with the talk entitle «Metabolic engineering for bioplastics and biofuels production».

The second one will be Dr. Basharat Jamil, from the High-Temperature Processes, with the talk «Unlocking the potential of hydrogen production using smart computational algorithms».

Dr. David Sanz

Short Bio 

PhD in Molecular Biosciences from the Autonomous University of Madrid in 2015-2020 in the group of Dr. Eduardo Díaz in the “Environmental Microbiology” department at the Center for Biological Research. Postdoctoral step 2020-2022 in the “Environmental Biotechnology” and “Microbial Systems and Protein Engineering” departments at the Center for Biological Research. Participation in 4 Spanish research projects and 4 European projects. Scientific publications: 3 research papers, 1 review, 1 chapter book and 1 patent.


«Metabolic engineering for bioplastics and biofuels production».

Metabolic engineering is the practice of optimizing genetic and regulatory processes within cells, using recombinant DNA technology, to increase the production of a certain substance. In this talk some examples of metabolic engineering will be shown to produce bioplastics or biofuels from different waste sources in order to revalorize them.

Dr. Basharat Jamil
