Area of interest:  Biological Engineering and Bioenergy

Dr. Guangli Cao is an associate professor of School of Life Science and Technology, Harbin Institute of Technology. She earned her PhD degree from Harbin Institute of Technology in Environmental Sciences in 2010. She has a broad background in bioscience and bioengineering, and has authored numerous journal papers. Her research addresses fundamental topics in biological engineering as it applies to bioproducts and bioconversion.

Research Description

 We use multi-disciplinary approaches including biochemistry, molecular biology, transgenetic and ecological technology. Our research interests mainly focus on:

1)Exploitation of microorganisms for the production of microbial enzymes (Submerged and Solid State Fermentation) and bioenergy from lignocellulosic feedstock.

2)Designing of bioreactors based on their applications – Fed-batch operations, Continuous fermentations (Development of bioreactors for immobilization of whole cells or cell free extracts).

3)Downstream recovery of microbial derived products-extra cellular and intracellular enzymes, solvents and single cell protein etc.

4)Strain improvement by conventional methods-Mutagenesis, protoplast fusion, and recombinant DNA technology.

5)Integration and optimization of biorefinery system
