DR BRUNO PINHEIRO

Research Scientist

Bruno is a trained pharmacist and biochemist. He has a extensive experience in the identification and cultivation of microorganisms from laboratory, clinical and environmental settings. He completed his PhD at the Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich where he studied conditions and genes that change primary and secondary metabolite production in a variety of bacterial species.

Based in Munich, Bruno works on the optimisation of the Baccu platform to increase the number and diversity of novel bacteria, as well as screening for high-value chemical producers.

When out of the lab, Bruno loves running, cycling, music, meeting friends – and travels to the beach as often as possible.
