Suzanne Farid is Professor in Bioprocess Systems Engineering at the Advanced Centre for Biochemical Engineering at University College London (UCL)
She is also Co-Director of the EPSRC Centre for Innovative Manufacturing in Emergent Macromolecular Therapies in collaboration with industrial and academic consortia.
She joined UCL’s faculty in 2001 and leads research on ‘Bioprocess Decisional Tools’ for evaluating the potential of biotech investment opportunities under uncertainty. More specifically, she has pioneered the design of novel algorithms at the process-business interface to facilitate cost-effective bioprocess design, capacity planning and R&D portfolio management. These tools have been applied to strategic decisions in the development and manufacture of biopharmaceuticals and cell therapies in collaborative projects with industry.
She sits on the UK BioIndustry Association Manufacturing Advisory Committee and is a Fellow of the IChemE.
She obtained her Bachelor’s and Ph.D. degrees in Biochemical Engineering with UCL and Lonza Biologics.
