Buzz joined Astrea in 2004 as a Research Scientist in the downstream purification team. In 2011 he became the Applications & Downstream Processing Specialist, and in 2016 was appointed the new role of PSD Manager. Buzz obtained his Biochemistry degree from University of Kent, then spent over 14 years in both the Research (University of Cambridge) and Biotech/Biopharmaceutical sectors (Adprotech, Metris and Celltech (now UCB)) before joining Astrea. He has significant product profiling and processing experience having worked on small-scale purification applications to large-scale manufacturing processes.
    • Dr. Mark Dürkop
      CEO Novasign GmbH, Project Lead BOKU - Department of Biotechnology, University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences, Vienna
      Biography
        With more than 10 years of experience, Mark is a passionate expert in the field of biopharmaceutical process development. He worked together with several Top25 Pharma companies in different projects targeting their needs in process development and understanding. Together with his team, he is developing a hybrid modeling software for both up and downstream processes. This software utilizes AI applied to process data and first principle models (hybrid models) to quickly predict critical quality attributes (CQAs) from critical process parameters (CPPs). Hereby, bioprocess development and characterization are accelerated significantly while simultaneously a better process understanding is gathered. From this research project, the company Novasign was founded in 2019 offering this unique software solution.
