As a manager in bioprocess development with Dupont Nutrition and Health, Kurt Fenster examines the effects of various strains of bacteria—lactic acid bacteria, bifidobacteria and propionibacteria—in manufacturing cultures for such products as probiotic dietary supplements, dairy cultures and silage inoculants.

“Scientifically, it is exciting to unlock the secrets of these strains,” says Fenster. “We’re creating superior products for our business units to bring to market—and, ultimately, our customers get the benefit.”
