Research on "Interfacial Microbial Engineering" and "Wastewater Treatment and Bioremediation"

Our research target is microorganisms, especially unicellular organisms known as bacteria. We focus on two major themes, "interfacial microbial engineering" and "wastewater treatment and Bioremediation,” and are involved in everything from basic research to practical applications.

堀 克敏

In our laboratory, we conduct basic research on the structure, function, and interaction with the keywords of "microorganism", "cell surface", and "interface". Based on the basic research, we aim to create a field of "Interfacial Microbial Engineering" that will expand new technologies to lead to green innovation.
In recent years, the microbial technology has advanced dramatically, and more efficient biological treatment technology has developed by using new materials and integrating with other technologies. In our laboratory, we also continue our research on wastewater treatment and bioremediation using microorganisms, aiming for social implementation of new technologies.
