Welcome to EMSL
Galya Orr, EMSL scientist and capability lead, is the recipient of a 100 Inspiring Women in STEM Award from INSIGHT Into Diversity magazine, the oldest and largest diversity magazine and website in higher education.
EMSL has selected Arnab Dutta to receive the 2014 M.T. Thomas Award for Outstanding Postdoctoral Achievement. He will be honored at a ceremony Sept. 30 starting at 3:30 p.m. in the EMSL Auditorium. He will make a presentation on his research at that time and a reception will follow.
Researchers are looking for more effective ways to get at all the carbon in biomass to create more energy and biochemicals. However, a lot of the carbon is in lignin – support tissues in plants, which makes up about a third of the biomass. International teams of scientists are utilizing EMSL’s expertise and capabilities to better understand how lignin can be efficiently deconstructed to release its carbon for a more renewable and sustainable energy future.
EMSL director Allison Campbell talks with EMSL scientist Kim Hixson about her research in plant science.
