At the beginning of August, Paola went for a three-month environment exchange to UMASS Amherst where she will work with our collaborators Prof. Derek Lovley and Prof. Dawn Holmes.
During her stay, Paola will learn how to do genetics in Geobacter and other organisms.
She’s also taking a course in scanning electron microscopy and she’s been really excited about finally eying every single detail of those unusual microorganisms she’s cultivating. We’re excited to see her SEM images too.
