Environmental Sciences Workshop at University of Rennes
We are thrilled to extend an invitation to the scientific community for a two-day training workshop on "New Developments in Environmental Sciences: Assessing Natural Resources and the Anthropogenic Impact." Hosted by EDUC-SHARE, the research and innovation branch of EDUC, this event promises a deep dive into groundbreaking research and techniques shaping the field of environmental sciences.
- Date: January 29-30, 2024
- Venue: University of Rennes, France
Confirmation of Participation:
Your EDUC partner university covers travel and accommodation costs (the number of participants is limited). Your local EDUC-SHARE project manager is your contact person for this.
DAY 1: January 29, 2024 - Geosciences Rennes
- Innovative Coupling of Microfluidics and Spectroscopy: Uncover the background of nanoparticle/metal interaction under flow conditions with Imane Khatib, a PhD student in water sciences and geochemistry.
- Dating of Unconventional Minerals: Join Bastien Lesage, PhD, as he explores the genesis of oxidized copper deposits in sedimentary domains using Laser Ablation ICO-MS.
- EDUC Workshop - Trace Element Analysis: Immerse yourself in a hands-on training session on the GeOHeLiS platform, covering trace element analysis by ICP-MS.
DAY 2: January 30, 2024 - ECOBIO
Morning Sessions - Molecular Biology/Environmental Genetics:
- The Importance of Microbes in Biogeochemical Cycling: Dr. Anniet Laverman, CNRS Research Director, discusses the abundance and diversity of microbes in biogeochemical cycling.
- Impact of Nitrate and Organic Carbon on Bacterial Diversity: Explore the research of PhD student Floriane Turrel on environmental variables affecting microbial diversity and biogeochemical cycles.
- Nucleic Acids Extraction and Microbial Abundance: Dr. Céline Roose Amsaleg demonstrates nucleic acids extraction and estimation of microbial abundance by Quantitative PCR.
- Prebiotics and Probiotics in Soil Microbial Communities: Dr. Romain Darriaut, CNRS Post-doctoral researcher, delves into the impact of prebiotics and probiotics on the taxonomic and functional diversity of microbial communities.
