How UArizona researchers are harnessing the power of algae to capture carbon
University of Arizona researchers in the College of Agriculture, Life and Environmental Sciences have created a photobioreactor capable of sustainably producing microalgae and other microorganisms for industrial use.
Drs. Laura Meredith and Jana U’Ren pivoted from their scheduled field work trip to Alaska to infer the impact of terrestrial carbon loss on climate change.
In early January, Drs. Laura Meredith and Jana U’Ren were planning a summer trip to Alaska to collect field samples for their newly funded climate change study – but as COVID-19 rapidly spread across the globe, the team quickly realized they needed to pivot from their original plans.
A summer internship at Bayer's Marana Greenhouse reaffirmed Caroline Schulte's passion to put her recent Biosystems Engineering degree to work to sustainably feed the world's growing population.
In a traditional outdoor farm system, corn can be pollinated once a day, typically in the morning. But Bayer’s Marana Greenhouse is not a traditional system, and their team is looking to change what ‘typical’ pollination looks like.
Throughout the novel coronavirus pandemic, faculty within the College of Agriculture, Life and Environmental Sciences have banded together to serve our local communities—from producing much-needed hand sanitizer for area healthcare workers to most recently donating 900 hundred pounds of fresh produce to Northern Arizona’s Navajo Nation.
