Postdoc and Ph.D. seminar series to highlight advances in Industrial Biotechnology and Synthetic Biology (IB/SynBio) research within the University.
Guest Speaker - Professor Jon Lloyd (School of Earth, Atmospheric and Environmental Sciences)
"Nature's nanotechnologists; mining the subsurface for novel IB microbes"
Jon is a Professor of Geomicrobiology and Director of the Williamson Research Centre for Molecular Environmental Science. His main area of interest include; microbial redox transformations of iron and other metals, metalloids and radionuclides for a range of environmental and biotechnological application.
Prof. Jonathan Lloyd
Role: Professor of Geomicrobiology
Organisation: School of Earth, Atmospheric and Environmental Sciences
Biography: Professor Lloyd leads a multidisciplinary geomicrobiology group working at the interface between biology and geology. His research focuses on the mechanisms of microbial metal reduction, with emphasis on the environmental impact and biotechnological applications of metal-reducing bacteria. Current activities are supported by funds from NERC, BBSRC, EPSRC, the EU and industry. He is also seconded part-time to the National Nuclear Laboratory via a Royal Society Industrial Fellowship, to support the development of our nuclear geomicrobiology programme.
