Smart affinity membranes for manufacture of high value therapeutic proteins (2019–2022)
This project aims to develop next generation separation membranes for production of high-value proteins from
serum. Through a combination of innovative chemistries, biotechnology and engineering, the project will enhance
production, efficiency and resolution of membranes for separating complex mixtures, and contribute to the broader
understanding in membrane science. By establishing a strong collaborative link between academic and industry
researchers, this project has the potential to significantly value-add to existing and exciting Australian technology by enhancing the efficiency of plasma fractionation, improving macromolecular isolation in complex media and by
improving the downstream bioprocessing pipeline in general.
