Michael Adams is a Principal Investigator of a Discovery Project that spans the Environmental and Microbial Physiology Components. His primary research interests are the metabolism of metals and their assimilation into metalloproteins. His laboratory conducts elemental analyses (53 metals) of environmental samples and is developing methods for high throughput characterization of metalloproteins in microbial biomass. The goal of the project is to determine how environmental metal availability determines and potentially limits microbial activity.
