Ranna – Biochemical Engineer

Profile from STEMNET’s Leading Light series of a new generation of young people using their STEM skills to push the boundaries, and to make the world a better and more exciting place to live.

“I get to use my knowledge of science and technology to make a direct difference to society.”

Ranna Patel

Ranna Patel did a doctorate in Biochemical Engineering which broke new ground in the development of processes to make biopharmaceuticals such as antibiotics and vaccines. Ranna’s research contributed to making these life-saving treatments faster, safer and more economically viable.

Ranna is pictured here inside a giant bubble – her work has included making washing-up liquid and glycerine, which are the main ingredients of bubble solutions.
