Christian, 36, is the inventor of NUMAFERMs technologies, co-founder of NUMAFERM and serves as CEO. Our vision is that in the near future nature-made pepteins – peptides of 20 -100 aa – have found their way into new markets and are a well-known feed stock for better products in life sciences and beyond. For this purpose screening libraries for pepteins were developed. The unique expression platform enables the reliable, costefficient and scalable production in a few months meeting pharmacopoeia specifications. We want to enable innovation and add value to your projects.
Christian is biochemist/biotechnologist by education and studied at the University of Duesseldorf, Germany, and Ann Arbor, USA.
