Event description

Description

Join us for an informal lecture on the incredible power of fungi to transform minerals and metals, even depleted uranium, with field leader in research, Professor Geoffrey Michael Gadd, Chair of Biology at the University of Dundee.

SEDA brings you a chance to hear about new research into the treatment of metals, hydrocarbons and other pollutants using the natural transformative processes of fungi, to deal with contaminated sites, recover metal from e-waste and other valuable functions.

New approaches like these do more than bury the problem and will be crucial to dealing with the decades of industrialised pollution and the resultant loss of habitat and biodiversity. Come down and discover how it works, and ask Professor Gadd how this enormous natural transformative power could be put to use, over an informal drink at The Project Cafe.
