SCENARIO: Impacts of microplastics on bioavailability of heavy metals in soil (SC2023_26)

Microplastic pollution is a global problem. Although most research on microplastics focuses on their importance as pollutants in the marine environment, it has been estimated that the amount found in soils is actually 4 to 23 higher the oceans. Read more

The Bottom-Up Ocean: Do marine sediments control ocean chemistry?

In this project you will use new and exciting experimental and analytical approaches to investigate how minerals in marine sediments help control the concentration and isotopic composition of rare earth elements (REE) in sediment porewaters and seawater. Read more

Re-defining the fates and toxicity profile of metal contaminants by organelle-specific correlative microscopy and spectroscopy

The UK has a large number of metal-contaminated sites that are a legacy of its industrial past. Determining the risks that these sites pose to ecosystems requires an understanding of how metals accumulate in soil organisms. Read more

[STFC Studentship] Modelling dust, gas and metals in high redshift galaxies using BEDE

  Research Group: Cardiff Hub for Astrophysics Research and Technology
High redshift galaxies discovered using submillimetre surveys of the sky (so-called submillimetre galaxies) are likely ancestors of present-day massive early-type galaxies. Read more

Advanced electron beam sources – 3D printing of metals

Electron beam technology is a unique technology that enables joining dissimilar and otherwise hard to weld metals with very precise and clean welds while minimizing the heating of the material outside the working area. Read more

The effect of environmental metals on the spread of antimicrobial resistance genes in the stickleback skin microbiome

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is a major threat to humans, animals, and our environment. Often associated with overuse of antibiotics in human and livestock dominated environments, its wider environmental occurrence is poorly understood. Read more

Impact of metal-based anticancer therapies on endogenous metal ion homeostasis

Metals are essential to life. Unlike organic biomolecules, metals cannot be synthesised or degraded in cells, and so the strict regulation of metal homeostasis (for example modulation of influx/efflux, compartmentalisation, and speciation) is critical to achieve correct cellular function.

OP2340 New biopolymer-based tools for mapping environmental water pollution with toxic metal ions

NERC ONE Planet DTP. Industrialisation has caused high anthropogenic stress, due to the release of toxic metal ions (e.g. arsenic, lead, and chromium) into water and soil, which has a lethal effect on humans and the ecosystem. Read more
