Environmental and Evolutionary Microbiology
My primary interest is the environment, the quality of our living resources and the ways that bacteria can help to manage and degrade human wastes and restore environmental health. Consequently, I am very interested in genetic adaptation processes in bacteria, the mechanisms by which they deal with toxic substances, how they react to pollution in general and how we can apply microbial processes in a useful way (like bacterial bioreporters, bioremediation, microbiome engineering).
Good-bye to Maxime and Nora, Welcome to Andrea, Senka and Caroline
January 29 2019
This is the last week for Maxime, finishing his Master's project on the design and engineering of phenol-responsive ribose-binding protein mutants, and for Nora, who helped Birge on the lake water communities project. Thank you so much, both of you, for the wonderful time and your endless energy! We will miss you. All the best for your future studies and careers.
Welcome to Andrea, our new PhD student working on the ICE project
and to Senka and Caroline, two new master students, who will start their projects mid-February.
Good-bye to Simone and Dainora
December 20 2018
This month is the last for Simone Hargraves, who did her First-Step project in the lab under supervision of Roxane, working on the role of oxidative stress on ICE activation.
And of Dainora Jankunaite, visiting student from Aalborg University, who did a four-month internship in the lab under supervision of Vladimir, working on the development of BRET-bacterial sensors.
Thank you, Simone and Dainora! It was a pleasure having you in the lab. All the best for the continuation of your studies.

We hope you like the new layout, which has been designed by Doran Pauka. Thank you, Doran!
