Thematic Project 3

Microbiomes: sentinels of the northern environment and human health

Microbiomes are predominant in the atmosphere, hydrosphere, cryosphere, soils, fauna and humans.

With the core objective of determining the roles of microbiomes in the northern human-environment ecosystem, this team of researchers will develop and deploy new photonic sensors and new sampling and analysis methods for a wide range of microbiological data for the monitoring of ecosystems, nutrition, and human health in the North.
