University of Manchester


Organisation Type: Higher Education
The University of Manchester is the largest university in the UK, employs 5,500 academic and research staff, has an annual income of £809 million, and is ranked 6th in Europe in the 2011 Shanghai Jiao Tong World Ranking. Multidisciplinary research is one of the hallmarks of the University, exemplified by the Williamson Research Centre for Molecular Environmental Science (Director Prof J.R. Lloyd), which houses a unique suite of state of the art geochemical, mineralogical and microbiological facilities. Lloyd’s Geomicrobiology within the WRC bridges between fundamental research and biotechnology, supported by >15M Euros of funding and has produced >150 publications in high impact journals including Science and Nature. A particular focus has been pioneering work on the microbial synthesis of nano-scale biominerals engineered for a range of applications, including remediation. The group also has considerable expertise in identifying the metabolic impact of toxic nanoparticles to microbial systems and dissecting coupled microbial processes in the subsurface, including the remediation of metals and organics.

Taking Nanotechnological Remediation Processes from Lab Scale to End User Applications for the Restoration of a Clean Environment.
