Dr. Sudeep Popat will be presenting at The Electrochemical Society's (ECS) 225th Meeting in Orlando, FL. Dr. Popat will be presenting "Electrochemical Characterization Reveals Multiple Distinct Electron Transport Pathways in Anode Biofilms of Geobacter Sulfurreducens." Dr. Popat's contributing authors include Rachel Yoho, Dr. Cesar Torres and alumni Oluyomi Ajulo.
Dr. Prathap Parameswaran will be presenting "Characterization of the simultaneous fermentation and anode respiration capabilities of the thermophilicThermoanaerobacter pseudethanolicus in a Microbial Electrolysis Cell (MEC)" at the 2014 North American meeting of the International Society for Microbial Electrochemistry and Technology (NA-ISMET). This is part of Dr. Parameswaran's ongoing work exploring new anode-respiring bacteria. NA-ISMET is being held May 13-15 at Penn State University.
Several SCEB members will be presenting posters at North American meeting of the International Society for Microbial Electrochemistry and Technology (NA-ISMET). NA-ISMET is being held May 13-15 at Penn State University. The posters will include
Joe Miceli has been selected to present at North American meeting of the International Society for Microbial Electrochemistry and Technology (NA-ISMET). Joe will be presenting "Improving Coulombic Recovery in Fermentable Substrate Fed MECs By Shifting the Products of Fermentation" where he will discuss his work on improving MEC performance through direct utilization of different fermentation products by anode-respiring bacteria. NA-ISMET is being held May 13-15 at Penn State University.
Congratulations to Dr. Sudeep Popat, who has been selected to give an Young Investigators presentation at ASM 2014. Dr. Popat will be presenting his work, "Unraveling the optimization of energy metabolism in members of Geobacteraceae during extracellular respiration" during ASM 2014 on May 17-20 in Boston. Contributors to this work include SCEB members Rachel Yoho and César Torres and SCEB alumni Laura Rago.
Thanks to all of the volunteers from the Swette Center for Environmental Biotechnology that made this year's Night of the Open Door a huge success. The Swette Center for Environmental Biotechnology was represented in full force with over 20 volunteers presenting stations about the human gut microbiome, bioremediation, microbial electrochemical cells, photobioreactors, and the scale of bacteria in the universe. Now many of the ~1700 visitors touring Biodesign at this year's event have an understanding of the useful services bacteria and other microorganisms offer our community.
