Challenges and approaches in demonstrating biosimilarity at the physicochemical and biological level
Joseph L. Glajch, Director, Analytical Development, Momenta Pharmaceuticals

This work provides an overview of the challenges and approaches to demonstrating biosimilarity using both physicochemical and biological methods. It describes the types of comparators used along with a discussion of different statistical approaches for the analyses.

Building important molecules from methanol”
Igor Bogorad, Postdoctoral Researcher, Chemical Engineering Department at UCLA

Methanol is produced commercially from methane in natural gas. However, current technologies for methanol conversion require high temperature and pressure. Natural biological pathways for methanol utilization are carbon and ATP inefficient. We designed the MCC to allow the conversion of methanol to higher alcohols with theoretical 100% carbon conservation at room temperature and ambient pressure. This pathway was demonstrated using an in vitro cell-free system and reached high carbon yields.
