Derek R. Lovley receives 2004 Proctor & Gamble Award from American Society for Microbiology

...anaerobic bacteria can use other metals, including gold and uranium, in their metabolism. Harnessing the ability of these microbes to reduce these substances to less-harmful forms may be key to removing uranium, petroleum, and other contaminants from groundwater. Further research on the anaerobic degradat...

Researchers probe link between nanotechnology and health
