Ignacio Poblete

Director del Laboratorio en Ingeniería en Biosistemas (www.bel-lab.org, BEL) donde se desarrollan las áreas de bioprocesos e ingeniería metabólica de microorganismos para la producción de químicos de interés industrial y bioconversión de residuos. Actualmente explotamos las capacidades metabólicas y creamos nuevas rutas biosintéticas en células bacterianas productoras de biopolímeros, ácidos orgánicos y aromáticos, nanoparticulas metálicas y carotenoides. Usamos bacterias ambientales para la remediación de diesel, PCBs, y metales pesados contenidos en distintos efluentes.
