TITLE: Colloid biology: The science of "living" particles
LECTURER: dr. Tomaž Rijavec
WHERE? Large O2 Lecture Room (O2 Section, Podgorica Reactor Center) WHEN? 1/31/2020, 1:00 PM
We are developing a new field in science, Colloid Biology, within the Bioanalytics Group of the Department of Environmental Sciences, which operates at the intersection of biology, physics and chemistry, and is therefore fundamentally based on interdisciplinary integration. Dr. Tomaž Rijavec, univ. dipl. biol., will present the research groups work related to studies of the morphological, physiological and genetic characteristics of a bacterial cell. Through several years of research of bacteria in the environment, the team has developed various approaches to immobilize bacterial cells to try to mimic the characteristics of the environment from which bacteria originate, thereby affecting bacterial activity. In addition to basic bacterial research, the group is also trying to develop new application (based on artificial cell aggregates and artificial biofilms) that are of interest to medicine, agronomy, ecoremediation and industrial biotechnology.
