ASM Biofilms
October 2018

Michael participated in the 8th ASM Conference on Biofilms in Washington, DC. He enjoyed presenting his work on the enzymatic transformation of antibiotics,  learned a lot about the formation and the functioning of biofilms in different environments, and met many excellent researchers from all over the world.

Fall Creek Monitoring Station
September 2018

We celebrated a year-and-a-half of sampling at the Fall Creek Monitroing Station with an apéro...and cupcakes!!

ACS Meeting
August 2018

Yuhan presented his paper, "QSARs to predict distribution coefficients of polar organic micropollutants on activated carbon and β-cyclodextrin polymers" at the 256th National Meeting of the American Chemcial Society. He was selected as a best platform presentation speaker and awarded $250. Congratulations, Yuhan!

Dryden WWTP
July 2018

Nothing like a sunny summer day at the local wastewater treatment plant. We have been collecting samples of microbial communities to study the mechanisms by which they perform chemcial transformaitons!

GRC: Water
June 2018

Damian and Corey had an excellent time at the Gordon Research Conference Environemtnal Science: Water discussing organic molecules, high-resolution mass spectrometry, chemcial transformations, and entrepreneurship in the water sector with our colleagues from around the world. Recognize anyone?
