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, biochemistry and biotechnology, – and collaborations with strucutural biologists, biophysicists, chemists and geologists in particular, we use an interdisciplinary approach to study how prokaryotes metabolise toxic metals and metalloids.
