Santini Lab


Environmental Microbiology Group

How do prokaryotes metabolise toxic elements? This is what we're interested in addressing. 

The Santini Lab’s core expertise is in microbiology, which we apply to a wide range of areas.

With lab members’ backgrounds – in molecular biology, microbiology, genetics, chemistry, biochemistry and biotechnology, – and collaborations with structural biologists, biophysicists, chemists and geologists in particular, we use an interdisciplinary approach to study how prokaryotes metabolise metals and metalloids.
