Research Interests
Cell factory in immobilized forms for biotransformation of (i) synthetic prochiral compounds into chiral synthons, (ii) naturally occuring substances to synthetic receptors. Lectinology associated with role of lectins in deciphering of "glycocode" at cell-cell communications. Biosensors tailor-made for monitoring and control of bioprocesses by flow injection analysis.
