Some of our current research lines include:

Harnessing of microorganisms for bioremediation and biofiltration of metal contaminated industrial liquids and waste.

Isolation and characterisation of psychrophilic Antarctic microorganisms and their enzymes.

Isolation of xerophilic (desiccation resistant) hyperthermophilic and radiation resistant microorganisms.

Isolation and characterization of lipids derived from thermophiles and hyperthermophiles.

Isolation and characterization of thermostable extremophilic enzymes.

Research Opportunities
As part of our research activities we offer possibilities for young scientists to carry out extremophiles related research in our institution.
