We’re happy to announce, that LMES is a part of successful COST action proposal “Protection, Resilience, Rehabilitation of damaged environment”. Dr Grzegorz Pasternak will act as an MC member and Ms. Karolina Kordek from Prof. Piotr Rutkowski’s group will be an MC substitute member.
The action spans several researchers from the field of bioelectrochemical systems. It consists of 9 EU countries, as well as collaborating groups from outside of the EU.
New year came across with lots of microbial power. In January we have just started a collaborative agreement with Okinawa Institute of Research and Technology in Japan and its group of Biology Systems (Prof. Igor Goryanin).
Together with OIST’s Dr. Łukasz Szydłowski, we will develop his 96-MFC array and search for new electroactive communities and deal with distillery wastewater.
We are proud to announce that our group has received the funding from the National Science Centre in prestigous Opus programme.
We will lead an interdisciplinary work on simultaneous bioelectrochemical degradation and biosynthesis in collaboration with the other groups in our Faculty of Chemistry as well as Department of Cellular, Computational and Integrative Biology (University of Trento).
