 BioORE: Biogeochemistry, Bioextraction & Biorecovery of Rare Earth Elements

I'm really pleased to announce that the Natural Environmental Research Council has awarded Catalyst funding to myself, Prof. Lynne Macaskie (University of Birmingham), Dr Joanne Wragg (British Geological Survey) and Prof. Richard Pattrick (University of Manchester) for our BioORE project, which I wrote the bid for earlier this year. The project starts on 1st September 2013 and runs for an initial 9 months. The PDRAs are Dr Angela Murray and Dr Stephanie Hanley-Sidhu, both of whom will be based at Birmingham but will undertake work at all of the project partners' institutions.
