The overarching goal of the Aquatic Microbiome Research Initiative-Research Community Program (AMRI-RCP) is to engage leading Swedish researchers with backgrounds in microbial ecology, evolution and geochemistry, in a collaborative effort to advance our understanding of aquatic microorganisms and their functional role in the environment. This multi- and interdisciplinary RCP brings together research groups focused on microbial ecology and water resource management.
It is broadly recognized that access to clean water and productive waters to sustain aquaculture and fisheries, is a major challenge for the past, contemporary and future societies. Still, our understanding of the key factors and mechanisms/processes controlling the chemical and biological status of natural water resources is incomplete. For instance, the role of microorganisms in improving and/or compromising the chemical status of waters, in mediating cycling of bioactive elements and ecological and evolutionary mechanisms that enable microorganisms to spread and adapt to a changing environment are yet to be fully elucidated.
We have an exciting line-up of guest speakers and panelists. Our keynote speaker will be Dr. Rita Colwell, American pioneering microbiologist whose breakthrough work focused on mitigating the spread of cholera in developing countries. Her book, A Lab of One’s Own: One Woman’s Personal Journey Through Sexism in Science , was published in August.
