Short CV/Education and training

  • Marie Gorwa-Grauslund, is professor at Applied Microbiology since 2009. She obtained a PhD in Molecular and Cellular Genetics in 1996 from INSA (National Institute of Applied Sciences) in Toulouse, France. After a post-doctoral fellowship at the Research Centre of Lesaffre in Marcq en Baroeul, France on the development of stress-tolerant yeast, she integrated the division of Applied Microbiology. At Lund University, MGG is responsible for the course Metabolic Engineering.
