Whole-cell bacterial biosensors for detection of structurally-diverse chemicals

Pablo I. Nikel earned a Ph.D. in Biotechnology and Molecular Biology (2009) in Argentina. After working in US (Rice University, supported by the ASM), Pablo moved to Europe as a post-doctoral fellow, funded by the European Molecular Biology Organization (EMBO) and the MSCA of the European Commission. He is now leading the Systems Environmental Microbiology Group at DTU Biosustain. Pablo’s team aims at rewriting Pseudomonas putida’s core biochemistry through synthetic metabolism for biosynthesis of novel compounds with a focus on new-to-nature fine chemicals ( The ambition of this research programme is to expand the limits of microbial biochemistry by engineering P. putida to access compounds that, as of today, are exclusively produced via traditional chemistry nowadays. Pablo is Full Professor of the Technical University of Denmark (since 2023) and, among other obligations, he is a cofounder of BioHalo, a spin-out company from his laboratory pursuing biological production of fluorochemicals.
