Luka Jeromel, PhDSenior Scientist, Downstream Process Development at Novartis
I am scientist at TRD Novartis, Mengeš, working on downstream process development of monoclonal antibodies, fusion proteins as well as some bispecific fusion proteins. Majority of the projects were biosimilars. After obtaining university degree of physics at the University of Ljubljana Faculty of Mathematics and Physics I earned my PhD degree on molecular imaging mass spectrometry working at Institute Josef Stefan Ljubljana. Currently I am developing various chromatographic techniques focusing on continuous chromatography and novel technologies. My professional interest lies in the optimization of the technical development process by utilization of mechanistic modelling principles and application of high throughput systems.
