Heinz Frei & I are hosting a miniworkshop at LBL on the Abiotic/Biotic Interface. If you are interested in this topic and would like to participate, please contact us!
Abiotic/Biotic Interface Miniworkshop
Friday, February 19, 2016 9am-1pm
Bldg 66 Room 316, LBL
This miniworkshop seeks to answer the question: How do we unravel the structure, energetics, and dynamics of the abiotic/biotic interface between inorganic materials and bacteria cells so as to enable design of efficient, scalable biohybrids?
Welcome to our newest undergraduate researchers, Joshua Deng and Andrew Prior!
A warm welcome to Jose Cornejo! He joins us from Plamen Atanassov’s group at University of New Mexico.
Double congratulations to Michaela – on starting her new job at Michigan State University and on the acceptance of our review to Biotechnology & Bioengineering on using synthetic biology to engineer exoelectrogens!
A warm welcome to Marimikel Charrier, who just joined our group as a Research Assistant!
Click over to Advanced Materials and Current Opinion in Biotechnology, where we just published two reviews! The review in Advanced Materials focuses on nanostructures that transport ions and electrons across cellular membranes, while the Current Opinion review discusses biometallurgy.
Three cheers each for our graduating seniors, Annie Li and Dimitri Umpriani, for being nominated for Senior Honors in their majors, Molecular & Cellular Biology and Chemical Biology!
Congratulations on taking the plunge and accepting admission to graduate school in Notre Dame’s Department of Biochemistry!
Congratulations, Michaela on accepting an Assistant Professorship at Michigan State University!
We seek a new member to join our multi-disciplinary team of synthetic biologists and geochemists working to explore whether thermophilic bacteria can be engineered to selectively capture dilute, valuable target metals from waste water. Check out this short position description and email Caroline if you’re interested.
