The Reguera lab studies how microbes adaptively respond to changes in their environment and exploits this knowledge as technologies that prevent human exposure to contaminants, pollutants and pathogens. Our research projects build on the enormous potential for advances that can be made when knowledge is generated and combined in new and unexpected ways. Thus, we study ‘electric’ microbes and harness their activities and electrical components in bioremediation, nanotechnology and bioenergy applications. We also study the microbial communities that remove agrochemicals and develop approaches to manipulate their remediation capacity in situ. In addition, we are applying our expertise in applied and environmental microbiology to investigate and manipulate how human-associated microbiomes adapt to internal and external cues. Interested?
