Novel development tools for processing of recombinant virus-like particles

Ladd Effio, Christopher

The focus of this thesis is laid on the implementation of integrated bioprocesses and the development of novel methods for recombinant protein-based virus-like particles (VLPs). Due to their pathogen-associated molecular patterns and the lack of viral nucleic acids, VLPs represent promising bionanoparticles for vaccine applications. This thesis aims to generate straightforward production, purification and analytical procedures for VLPs by advancing rational design tools for large biomolecules.
