Maurizio Mormino

PhD student

Graduated at Pisa University, Maurizio has a background in Biochemistry and System Biology, with microscopy as main field of expertise. As a PhD student at Chalmers University of Technology, his research focuses on the development of genetic biosensors for yeast that report intracellular the concentration of biochemicals produced by the cells or inhibitors found in the raw material. The biosensors developed can be used to find more efficient cell factories with improved tolerance towards inhibitors or increased production of biochemicals. Efficient cell factories are crucial for a more efficient biochemical conversion of renewable carbon sources needed for a transition into a resource-efficient society.
