We are having very busy summertime! In July LMES has grown to seven members by hosting our international colleagues and students. Dr. Fatma Yalcinkaya, a group lead in Technical University of Liberec has joined us to work towards novel membranes for MFCs, while two graduate students will get their hands on MFC science: Omar Ahmed from Ondokuz Mayıs University (Samsun, TR) and Antonio Santoro (University of Ferrara, IT).
