Aug. 2021 - Ashley Murphy is now Dr. Ashley Murphy and she is moving to PSI to work Mars2020 mission with Dr. Aileen Yingst!!! Congratulations Ashley!
Jul. 2021 - Ifeoma gave a talk "Subsurface Fluid Geochemistry Shape Microbial Community Structure and Function at Solfatara-Pisciarelli Hydrothermal Systems, Italy." at the Goldschmidt Conference.
Microbes are ultimate survivors; they are found just about everywhere on Earth!
More about microbes and our research you may find on next pages.
