Lecturer: Lubbert Dijkhuizen, University of Groningen | May 9, 2018

The 2018 Technical Conference and Belfort Lecture will be held on Wednesday, May 9, 2018 in Pfendler Hall, Purdue University.

Lubbert Dijkhuizen (1951) is professor of Microbiology. He initiated many research projects into life processes in micro-organisms and relevant industrial and other applications of this fundamental knowledge. The main focus in this research is on the ability to use micro-organisms and enzymes in biotechnological processes, in particular in the conversion of carbohydrates. Dijkhuizen's research also focuses on tuberculosis.

Dijkhuizen is one of the initiators and joint founders of the Carbohydrate Competence Center (CCC), a public-private cooperation among 19 businesses and 6 knowledge institutions. Research is being conducted in 24 projects (total value € 28 million) on carbohydrates that play an important role in Nutrition and Health. The Dagblad van het Noorden has written an overview article about the CCC's research and its implications for healthy nutrition, for example.
