Social Microbes

Social Microbes is a new collaboration between Then Try This and Dr. Elze Hesse. Elze is a researcher working on the social behaviours of microbes, and how these behaviours could be changed through various interventions, in order to bring benefits like helping us to clean up mine waste, or helping crops to take up less heavy metals from polluted soil.

We now have an open call for funded residencies, and the deadline for applications is 28 Feb 2023.

The project will continue with an AccessLab in 2024, and some citizen science with farmers from 2025-2028. All funded through Elze's UKRI Future Leaders Fellowship.
