Michael SAUER is Senior Researcher (Ass. Prof.) and PI at the Institute of Microbiology and Microbial Biotechnology of BOKU University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences in Vienna, Austria. His research aims at the microbial production of base chemicals from renewable resources. Metabolic and bioprocess engineering are combined to provide microbial processes of industrial relevance. One branch of his research is focused on the characterization and optimization of natural producers, through exploitation of natural diversity. A second line of research is dedicated to the development of synthetic tools for the analysis of membrane transport proteins. He studied biotechnology at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology - ETH Zürich in Switzerland and obtained his PhD in Biochemistry at the University of Vienna.
