Bernhardt L. Trout, Ph.D.

Professor at MIT

Dr. Bernhardt L. Trout served as Advisor of Continuus Pharmaceuticals, Inc. Bernhard serves as Co-chair of the Singapore-MIT Alliance Program on Chemical and Pharmaceutical Engineering and serves as Director of the Novartis-MIT Center for Continuous Manufacturing and of Continuus Pharmaceuticals, Inc. Bernhardt serves as a Member of Scientific Advisory Board of CMD Bioscience LLC. His research focuses on molecular engineering, specifically the development and application of both computational and experimental molecular-based methods to engineering pharmaceutical formulations and processes with unprecedented specificity. Since 1999, he has focused on molecular engineering for biopharmaceutical formulation, primarily liquid formulation, but also lyophilized formulation. A major aspect of his research focuses on developing both microscopic and macroscopic models to design stable formulations efficiently. He is a Professor of Chemical Engineering at MIT. Bernhardt received Master’s degrees from MIT and his Ph.D. from the University of California at Berkeley.
