Cell Culture and Fermentation
Optimization Lab
Welcome to the Cell Culture and Fermentation Optimization Laboratory!

The Cell Culture and Fermentation Optimization Lab, part of the Department of Bioengineering, is housed in the Biosystems Research Complex. Our lab is dedicated to studying various cell culture and fermentation techniques. Under the guidance of Dr. Sarah W. Harcum, our broad goal is to understand how various factors affect the productivity and, ultimately, the success of the many different forms of cell cultures.

Dr. Harcum is also leading a team of scientists from four universities (Clemson University, University of Delaware, Tulane University, and Delaware State University) which was recently awared a $6 million grant from┬áthe National Science Foundation’s Established Program to Stimulate Competitive Research, or EPSCoR. The CHO g2p project aims to develop new biological approaches to better understand the Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) cell line, which is used to manufacture most biopharmaceuticals.
