Congratulations to Dr. Rudra Palash Mukherjee, a former graduate student of our collaborator Dr. Beitle and a student intern for Boston Mountain Biotech. Rudra was selected as one of the four finalists for the Millipore Sigma’s 2016 Life Science Award in Bioseparations for his innovative research towards the development of a recombinant peptide production and purification platform.
During his PhD, Rudra demonstrated a 38% increase in the initial capture efficiency by using a Lotus modified cell line and also developed a mutant chemical cleavage resistant GFPuv that can be used to simplify downstream purification.
Rudra will present his work titled ‘Recombinant platform for production and purification of a novel anti-Candida peptide’ to the judging committee in Bedford, MA on October 18, 2016 where the winner will receive a $10,000 award.
