Royal Society Funding for Research into Global Nitrogen and Carbon Cycling

Congratulations to our new Dorothy Hodgkin Research Fellow, Laura Lehtovirta-Morley who has just secured funding from the Royal Society for funding of two projects entitled “Crosstalk between global biogeochemical cycles and its impact on climate change” and “Resolving a missing biochemical link in the global nitrogen cycle”. These exciting new projects will involve use of Laura’s new ammonia oxidising archaea (see image of Nitrosotalea devanaterra) to investigate links between global carbon and nitrogen cycles. For this Laura will be recruiting new PhD students to start in her lab in October 2018.
