Dalton Seminar Series - Hot topics in environmental science; how microbes hitch a lift on the nuclear fuel cycle
|Dates:||27 May 2015|
|Times:||12:00 - 13:00|
|What is it:||Seminar|
|Organiser:||Dalton Nuclear Institute|
|Who is it for:||University staff, Adults, Alumni, Current University students|
|Speaker:||Prof Jonathan Lloyd|
A presentation will be given by the University’s Prof Jonathan Lloyd from the School of Earth, Atmospheric & Environmental Sciences entitled:
‘Hot topics in environmental science; how microbes hitch a lift on the nuclear fuel cycle.’
Following the presentation there will be opportunity for questions/discussion and light refreshments will be available afterwards.
Prof Jonathan Lloyd currently leads a multidisciplinary geomicrobiology group working at the interface between biology and geology. Their research focuses on the mechanisms of microbial metal reduction, with emphasis on the environmental impact and biotechnological applications of metal-reducing bacteria. His 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 the nuclear geomicrobiology programme.
