The Hazen Lab
The Hazen Lab is a diverse group of scientific engineering associates, post doctoral fellows, research associates, technicians, and students in microbial ecology and environmental engineering that are led by Dr. Terry C. Hazen. The primary research emphasis of the lab is basic and applied field microbial ecology, especially as it relates to bioremediation, biofuels, enhanced oil recovery, and water quality. The overarching vision for the lab is understanding the fundamental concepts of systems biology and environmental stress response pathways from the molecular to the ecosystem level to improve our knowledge of biogeochemistry.
