New research project: ICEBIO

ICEBIO is a PhD network that will train the next generation of experts in glacier microbiology and biogeochemistry.

ICEBIO will provide a database of the functional diversity and potential of the glacier biome, which will not only greatly improve our understanding of a threatened biome, but also demonstrate the potential for exploiting economic and ecological services.

Dr. Brill + Partner GmbH will, among other things, provide a risk assessment regarding pathogenic organisms from the glacier biome, including the inclusion of bacteria, fungi, and viruses.

The ICEBIO Doctoral Network is supported by a grant from the European Commission’s MSCA Doctoral Network program under project number 101072761
