Welcome to the Microbiome Engineering Lab in the Department of Chemical Engineering and Applied Chemistry at the University of Toronto! Our lab works at the interface of engineering and biology to harness microbial communities to recover valuable resources (energy, chemicals, materials) from wastes. This is accomplished using the most advanced and innovative approaches from systems & synthetic biology, microbial ecology, and bioengineering. Read more about our projects here.
We are currently recruiting bright, motivated, and enthusiastic researchers to join the lab in Fall 2023 as undergraduates, graduate students and postdocs. Please see our Join page for more information.
