Professor Véronique Chotteau, Director of AdBIOPRO,Centre for Advanced Bioproduction by Continuous Processing. Chotteau is Head of the CellTechnology group, at the Dept.Industrial Biotechnology,School of Engineering Sciences in Chemistry, Biotechnology, andHealth, KTH-Royal Institute ofTechnology, Stockholm, Sweden. Education: BSc Eng.Sciences, MSc Electrical Engineering, MSc Biotechnology, PhDAutomaticControl/Modelling/Biotechnology (University of Louvain, Belgium),Chotteau has more than30 years of experience in mammalian cell culture including≥ 10years in biopharmaceutical industry (at Pharmacia Upjohn/Biovitrum, Stockholm, nowadays Swedish Orphan Biovitrum). She joined KTH in 2008, when she was offered to lead the animal cell cultivation activities. Her group is focusing on cell-based processes for biologics production, high cell density perfusion of CHO and HEK293 cells, mathematical modelling as well as the production of viral vectors and cells for human therapy. Her group was the first to publish cell densities higher than 200millions cells/mL in CHO cell perfusion process.
