Open Call for ACTIP Fellowships Applications 2019-2020

ACTIP is an informal science-based forum of European companies employing animal cell technology in the development and production of biopharmaceuticals, vaccines and other preventative or therapeutic approaches.
Twice a year the ACTIP member company representatives, invited speakers and observer companies meet to discuss scientific research, development, technology and regulatory topics of mutual interest.
ACTIP opens up these informal industrial meetings to young scientists working on a project in biomanufacturing or related activity of industrial interest, i.e. development of new expression systems, new mammalian cell lines, cell culture processes, test development.
The ACTIP Fellowship consists of all costs paid to attend a two-day ACTIP meeting.

Deadline: 9 August 2019

Modification of bacterial nanocellulose properties through mutation of motility related genes in Komagataeibacter hansenii ATCC 53582

The phenotype analysis of the disruption mutants showed a reduction in motility, which resulted in higher compaction of nanocellulose fibers and improvement in their mechanical properties. The data strongly suggest that these genes play an important role in the formation of BNC membrane by Komagataeibacter species.
