Grant success from the Royal Society


Congratulations to Royal Society Dorothy Hodgkin Fellows Laura Lehtovirta-Morley and Marcela Hernandez who have both been awarded further grants from the Royal Society.

Laura’s grant will be funding a postdoc who is aiming to gain insights into the archaeal ammonia oxidation pathway and its intermediates through the use of substrate analogues while Marcela will hire a postdoc to analyse active microbial community oxidising carbon monoxide in volcanic soils using a range of cutting-edge techniques such as stable isotope probing and high-throughput sequencing. This funding further expands the portfolio of research on the biogeochemical cycling of nitrogen and carbon relating to climate change in the ELSA Lab.
