Superbug Surveillance

Sören Wacker (PostDoc in Noskov Lab, Centre of Molecular Simulation)
The rise of antibiotic-resistant bacteria is a problem that it threatens modern medicine. Half of the common bacteria are already resistant to our front-line drugs. New superbugs are emerging which cannot be cured with conventional drugs anymore. Calgary Laboratory Services has collected bacteria from Calgary’s population within the past 20 years, including every single strain cultured from bloodstream infections. At the University, these bacteria are re-grown and dismantled to understand the spread and the origins of multi-drug resistance, in the worldwide largest population-based.

Solar-powered microbes for bioenergy

The Solar Biocells team is currently based out of the Energy Bioengineering Group at the University of Calgary. These three members belong to Dr. Marc Strous’s Energy Bioengineering and Geomicrobiology Group (Marianne Haines : PhD student and a microbiologist. She currently works on enhancing algal productivity // Taina Tervahaut : Postdoctoral fellow and an environmental engineer with a desire to create self-sustaining communities with effective circulation of resources // Will Richardson : Research associate and is responsible for the design and operation of a photo bioreactor pilot plant.)

Our Solar Biocells technology harnesses the natural mechanism of microalgae to use solar energy for carbon capture and growth. The microalgae biomass is then converted into valuable products. In our system, microalgae cultivation is optimized by using photobioreactors and organic solar cells to increase productivity and to improve light absorption. Electricity, pure oxygen and bioenergy in the form of methane are products of this novel system. Solar powered bioenergy production using microalgae brings us closer to sustainable energy generation.
