CHARLES TENNANT MEMORIAL LECTURE 2019 ADAPT, SURVIVE AND THRIVE... HOW BIOTECH COMPANIES CAN LEARN FROM NATURE

The Charles Tennant Memorial Lecture 2019 - Adapt, Survive and Thrive... how biotech companies can learn from nature, Dr Ian Fotheringham, Ingenza Ltd

Adapt, Survive and Thrive... how biotech companies can learn from nature, Dr Ian Fotheringham, Ingenza Ltd

About the speaker
Ian Fotheringham received a PhD in Molecular Biology from the University of Glasgow, UK, in 1986. He then joined the NutraSweet division of Monsanto in Chicago, USA, before developing large scale bioprocesses with NSC Technologies and Great Lakes Fine Chemicals. In 2003 he co-founded Ingenza, a leading Industrial Biotechnology and Synthetic Biology company, with an extensive and unique range of proprietary enabling technologies in microbial strain and cell line improvement, fermentation and bioprocess development.

Synopsis
For centuries Industrial Biotechnology has been used to employ micro-organisms to manufacture products such as fermented foods and drinks. With the increased ability to systematically engineer the genetics and biochemistry of biological systems, particularly microbes, we have the potential to meet a vast range of growing human needs, from competitive, sustainable manufacturing to combating anti-microbial resistance and helping to meet future food and energy requirements.
The seminar will describe Ingenza’s harmonising of chemo-enzymatic chemical synthesis and scalable biomanufacturing with biotechnology tools that aim to address blood coagulation disorders, antimicrobial peptide discovery and novel medical devices and diagnostics.
