Amin Javidanbardan

Amin Javidanbardan received his Bachelor’s Degree in Chemical Engineering from Tehran Polytechnic (Tehran, Iran), followed by his Master’s degree in Chemical and Biological Engineering (CBI) at University of Erlangen-Nuremberg (Erlangen, Germany). His thesis was entitled “Experimental investigations of protein refolding on chromatographic ion-exchangers.” The initial idea of his thesis was to refold denatured proteins on the ion-exchange chromatographic media and simultaneously, to separate impurities and various states of the protein, based on different electrostatic interactions. After completing his Master’s degree, he worked as a research assistant in Institute of Particle Technology at University of Erlangen-Nuremberg in a project related to electrospray–differential mobility analysis- mass spectrometry (ESI-DMA-MS) and electrospray scanning mobility particle sizer (ES-SMPS) ESI-SMPS examining the impact of solvent composition on the ESI process using macromolecules such as proteins as solutes. Obtaining enough research experience in Germany, he returned to Iran and continued his career as a research assistant at Pasteur Institute of Iran, Production and Research Complex, where he supervised and conducted projects related to upstream and downstream processing of recombinant hepatitis B surface antigen (rHBsAg) expressed in Pichia pastoris. So far, he had published more than ten research papers in this field of pharmaceutical bioprocess development in both areas of fermentation and downstream processing. Recently he has joined CODOBIO International Training Network (ITN) and has been awarded a Marie Skłodowska-Curie actions Ph.D. fellowship under the supervision of Dr. Ana M. Azevedo and Prof. Joao Pedro Conde.

Research focus:
