Special issue Biopharmaceuticals

Drug discovery and production are highly interlinked, because the main product attributes need to be defined early on. This Special issue edited by Alois Jungbauer (University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences, Vienna, Austria) and Klaus Graumann (Sandoz GmbH, Kundl, Austria) covers several areas relevant to the discovery, development and manufacturing of biopharmaceuticals. Topics include antibodies, protein engineering and purification.
