The HIMS Biocatalysis group is part of the UvA Research Priority area in “Sustainable Chemistry” and carries out cutting-edge research at the interphase between the chemical and the biological sciences.

The main research objective is the development of novel bio-inspired systems for the sustainable manufacture of structurally diverse chemical products. This is achieved through the development of new biocatalytic cascades (i.e. using isolated enzymes in vitro) and biosynthetic pathways (in microbial organisms). Research projects span from fundamental to applied catalysis, the latter in collaboration with industry.
