Dr. Stéphane Guillouet is Professor in Biochemical Engineering and Metabolic Engineering at the INSA Toulouse. He is conducting his research at the Toulouse Biotechnology Institute where he is leading the Fermentation Advances and Microbial Engineering research group (30 persons). He is also the Head of the Microbial Engineering Department at TBI. He graduated his PhD in Biochemical Engineering in 1995 in the group of Prof. JM Engasser at the Institut National Polytechnique de Lorraine. During his 3 years postdoctoral research at MIT, he acquired skills in metabolic engineering in the group of Prof. AJ Sinskey.
Its research activity at INSA-TBI focuses in the integration of metabolic and biochemical engineering for the development of robust microbial processes for biofuels and chemicals. Connected to the research and application domains of the project ConCO2rde; SG led as coordinator in multiple research projects in the engineering of C. necator for the production of hydrocarbons and alcohols from CO2 (MIT-France Seed Fund, France-MIT Energy Project, ANR project ProBio3).
