We are a European Research Council ( )-supported research lab working in the School of Natural Sciences at the .
Please follow our blog , and learn more about our interests and activities, which are in these areas:
The application of our research is in innovating to optimise biotechnologies and to develop new ones, including for international development.
An ‘ EcoSystems Biology ‘ approach is required to understand the thermodynamics, ecology and ecophysiology of complex microbial communities.
We work closely with our colleagues in NUI Galway , the University of Glasgow and elsewhere, to apply the culture microbiology, genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, metabolomics and mathematical & ecological modelling required.
Our core work is part of a European Research Council -funded project, but we are also working on projects by the Irish Research Council, Enterprise Ireland, Science Foundation Ireland and the UK Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council.
