Nature paper
December 2015

Our research investigating the use of a new porous cyclodextrin polymer to sequester organic micropollutants was published online in Nature! The work was performed in collaboration with Prof. Will Dichtel and colleagues. We are very excited about this work and our ongoing characterization and development of this material.

Copenhagen Trip

Prof. Helbling traveled to Copenhagen to participate in the open end-users meeting for the EU funded project BIOTREAT: Biotreatment of Drinking Water Resources Polluted by Pesticides, Pharmaceuticals, and other Micropollutants.  Meetings were held at Eigtveds Pakhus and the Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland. Spending time in Denmark was great; flying over Greenland on the flight back to Ithaca was amazing.

New Paper Out

The October issue of Applied Microbiology and Biotechnology is out today.  There you can find an article where we report on the metabolic profiling of a novel carbofuran-mineralizing bacterium.   This work was led by our collaborators at KU Leuven, Belgium.  Prof. Helbling was involved in the project during his postdoc.
