Main goal of the project is to understand the metabolism of mammalian cell under various operating conditions and consequent optimization of the feeding strategy.

Project is a part of large initiative to understand mammalian cell metabolism and its change under various conditions. Student will be responsible for the modelling of cell metabolism using various techniques including Metabolic Balance Analysis and Flux Balance Analysis. 
Extracellular fluxes will be calculated from the time evolution of the carbon and nitrogen sources such as glucose, glutamine, lactate as well as all amino acids using HPLC. In parallel to this technique for selected conditions LC-MS method will be used to gain knowledge about the concentration of several intracellular components. When combined with the specific consumption of labeled isotope 13C (various carbon sources) and 15N (nitrogen containing amino acids), this method could be used for validation of the intracellular fluxes calculated by the developed model. Once validated such model will be used to optimize feeding strategy for fed-batch and perfusion cultivation.
