Biography Ragnhild Dragøy Whitaker
I work as research manager in the marine biotechnology (MB) group at Nofima. In this group, we focus on the development of new technologies and products derived from marine biomass. We work with both fisheries co-streams as well as new and conventional marine biomass sources. Our research is targeted towards the identification, extraction and production of high-value products taken from laboratory to industrial scale in a step-wise process. I have experience from academia and industry, and I have worked with both basic and applied research. My research expertize lays within the extraction of high value products from marine biomass, identification and analysis of bioactivity in various prokaryote and eukaryote systems, single cell arrays, fiber-optics, and synthesis and use of different composition nanopraticles for use within drug delivery and imaging.

1. January 2016 – 31. December 2018
To develop a sustainable biorefinery process by using synthetic microbial communities and Moving Bed Technology to transform low cost marine rest raw materials to high value compounds.
2. January 2017 – 27. December 2019
The overall goal for this project is twofold; the establishment of biovalorization processes to convert unutilized marine raw rest materials into valuable bioproducts on a pilot scale.
