DTU Studieprojekt - Engineering of non-model bacteria for therapeutic production

Engineering of non-model bacteria for therapeutic production

København og omegn
Project

  • Microbiome therapeutics represent a new class of drug delivery system, in which therapeutics are produced in situ in the body by live microbes. Currently the vast majority of microbiome therapeutics are being developed in well described microbial chassis, such as E. coli, as this facilities engineering, however these chassis are not necessarily the best adapted to production in the human gut, nor do they provide the most intrinsic benefits. In recent years many commensal gut bacteria have been linked to specific health benefits and they represent a wealth of untapped potential, with regards to future microbiome therapeutic chassis.

To fill this gap we have recently developed a work flow for the engineering of commensal gut bacteria, which we have implemented successfully. We are now looking to test this work flow for the production of therapeutic molecules in more species of previously unengineered commensal gut bacteria.

Skills
This project will equip you with skills in anaerobic culturing, working with non-model bacteria, cloning, experimental design, data management and using an electronic lab notebook.

Additional info

  • You will be working in the Bacterial Synthetic Biology section at DTU Biosustain, led by Morten Sommer, in the microbiome therapeutics subgroup led by Ruben Vazquez Uribe. The project will be supervised by PhD student Carmen Sands. For more information on the group and what we do see: http://www.savingtheworldwithscience.com/
  • If you are interested in this project please send your CV and latest transcript of your grades to Carmen (carsan@biosustain.dtu.dk)
