Dr. Véronique Chotteau

Position & Role in STACCATO

Véronique Chotteau, Docent Principal Investigator of the Cell Technology group, Dept. Industrial Biotechnology, School of Engineering Sciences in Chemistry, Biotechnology, and Health, KTH (Royal Institute of Technology), Stockholm, Sweden. Main supervisor of ESR5, Co-supervisor of ESR2, ESR11. Leader of the WP4.


Dr. Véronique Chotteau has more than 30 years of experience in mammalian cell culture including more than 10 years in biopharmaceutical industry (at Pharmacia Upjohn/Biovitrum, Stockholm, nowadays Swedish Orphan Biovitrum). She joined KTH in 2008, when she was offered to lead the animal cell cultivation activities, due to her expertise in cell culture and her industrial background. Since then, her group (2 post-doc, 5 PhD students, 2 master students, 3 staff’s) has focused on cell-based processes for production of biologics, high cell density perfusion and mathematical modelling, among others. Her group was the first to publish cell densities higher than 200 millions cells/mL in CHO cell perfusion process.
