Antonio R. Moreira

Title

Professor and Vice Provost

Education

Post-doctoral., Biochemical Engineering – University of Waterloo, Canada, 1977-1978
Ph.D., Chemical and Biochemical Engineering – University of Pennsylvania, 1977
M.S., Chemical and Biochemical Engineering – University of Pennsylvania, 1975
B.S., Chemical Engineering – University of Porto, Portugal, 1973

Professional Interests

My research interests fall under the overall area of bioprocess engineering, i.e., the utilization of engineering principles and tools for the establishment of biologically-based processes. This includes microbial fermentations, cell culture as well as biodownstream technology.
