Nancy G. Love, Ph.D., Professor, Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, University of Michigan

Chemical stressors and the potential risks they pose to the environment and public health have long been a concern. There are many ways that chemicals influence microbial communities, and microbial communities influence chemical fluxes and transformations. These mutual influences are extensive, complex and dynamic. In this talk, Love will review several studies in the context of the systems and flows that occur within environmental biotechnology and review current methods that provide us with insight.

The Biodesign Institute Swette Center for Environmental Biotechnology is presenting this seminar.
