Production of Hard-to-Produce Proteins with CHO
Bjørn Voldborg of the Technical University of Denmark joins us to discuss the impact of big data on cell line engineering, his team’s success in producing Alpha-1 antitrypsin, the appeal of applied science, and more.
Bjørn Voldborg, MSc, Director, CHO Cell Line Development, The Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Biosustainability
Bjørn Voldborg has more than 20 years of experience working with recombinant protein expression from both academic and industrial settings. Bjørn was Team Leader in the biotech company Pharmexa A/S, responsible for molecular cloning and expression of protein-based drug candidates. From this he went to the NNF Center for Protein Research at the University of Copenhagen as Head of the Protein Production Unit, and since 2012 Bjørn has been heading the CHO Cell Line Engineering project at the NNF Center for Biosustainability at the Technical University of Denmark, a project dedicated to the engineering of improved protein production cell factories.
