Short Biography of Author
|Prof. Dr. Bernd Rehm received his PhD (1993) in Microbiology at the Ruhr University of Bochum (Germany). He was a Research Fellow at the University of British Columbia (1994–1996) in Canada and at the University of Muenster (1996–1998) in Germany where he continued as Research Group Leader until 2003. He was appointed as Associate Professor (2004–2005) and as Professor and Chair of Microbiology (2005–2017) at Massey University, New Zealand. Since 2017, Professor Rehm is the founding Director of the Centre for Cell Factories and Biopolymers at Griffith University (Brisbane, Australia). The centre’s mission is to research and develop innovative functional materials and technologies that can provide solutions for global health and environmental challenges. He has authored over 200 publications that attracted >15,000 citations (h-index of 63). He is named inventor on 59 patent applications, 25 of which were granted. His team’s research focuses on harnessing biological self-assembly systems for in vivo and in vitro self-organisation of biological nano- and micro-structures. Synthetic biology and bioengineering approaches are applied to design and manufacture innovative high-performance materials. He made key discoveries providing critical insights into biosynthesis of biopolymers and the formation biopolymer-based supramolecular assemblies. A major research focus is the development of platform technologies for the assembly of precision-engineered materials for uses, such as particulate subunit vaccines, immunodiagnostics, biosensors, catalysis, and bio-separations.|
