Cecilia Geijer

Forskare at Department of Biology and Biological Engineering, Industrial Biotechnology

Dr. Cecilia Geijer joined the Division of Industrial Biotechnology in September 2013. Her overall research aim is to develop yeast strains for lignocellulosic bioethanol production. Strain characteristics that are sought after by industry include robustness, high tolerance to inhibitory compounds formed during pretreatment of the lignocellulosic biomass as well as rapid and complete fermentation of all sugars available. In a project funded by Energimyndigheten (the Swedish Energy Agency), Cecilia is studying a novel yeast species to elucidate its full potential as a natural glucose and xylose fermenting microorganism for industrial bioethanol production.
