Environmental Micro and Molecular Biology

Coupled with our state-of-the-art physiological, molecular, and imaging equipment, EA&E teams work to support sponsors with viable and innovative strategies addressing the most pressing needs in contaminant characterization and remediation, reactions to physical and chemical perturbations, the development and application of environmental stress indicators, and physiological status of biotic and abiotic organisms.

Characterization and Remediation

Characterization and Remediation

With over 2000 square feet of microbiology-focused laboratory space, our teams are proficient in processing, culturing, and analyzing samples, including dose, exposure, and kinetic/sorption experiments; fate and transport assessments; and analytical detection of environmental contaminants across a broad range of sample origins and contaminants including metals, organics, and radionuclides. Our approaches and tools inform and enable predictive assessments that directly support the effective design, implementation, and performance of remedial solutions and their long-term impacts.

Molecular Biology

Molecular Biology

EA&E staff scientists utilize molecular techniques to model and monitor changes to organisms in aquatic and terrestrial environments. With state-of-the-art diagnostic capabilities and equipment, the resulting molecular and physiological information can be used to evaluate the effects of contaminants or techniques on environmental stressors, population management, and restoration activities.
