14th Wädenswil Day of Life Sciences - 4th CCBIO Symposium 2023

14<sup>th</sup> Wädenswil Day of Life Sciences - 4<sup>th</sup> CCBIO Symposium 2023

The 4th CCBIO Symposium on Industrial Biocatalysis will explore recent advances in the field, including topics such as sourcing, tailoring and application of wildtype and designer enzymes, repurposing of metalloenzymes, application of artificial cofactors, establishment of enzymatic cascades and the industrial use of biocatalysts.

Start Date 08.06.2023 - 08:30
Event End 08.06.2023 - 17:00
Location ZHAW Campus Grüental (GA), School of Life Sciences and Facility Management
Grüentalstrasse 14, 8820 Wädenswil, Lecture Hall GA 203

The discipline of biocatalysis has grown significantly in recent years, leading to a surge in industrial applications. Products made through enzymatic transformations are utilized in various industries, including the food, feed, chemical, pharmaceutical, and cosmetic sectors. Furthermore, with the aim to create more sustainable and environmentally friendly processes, enzymes are increasingly applied in cascade systems and in tandem with chemical process steps.

With its interdisciplinary approach, this conference provides a unique opportunity to learn from and network with experts from academia and industry.

The Competence Center of Biocatalysis at the ZHAW promotes biocatalysis as a complementary method to classic organic synthesis and aims to help bridge the gap between academic laboratories and the production plant. By connecting relevant research competences CCBIO strives to develop a comprehensive biocatalytic toolbox consisting of enzyme libraries and methods, which will facilitate the development of biocatalytic and biosynthetic processes for the chemical and pharmaceutical industry.
