Bioremediation and Bioavailability


Dr. José Julio Ortega, Senior researcher, is the head of the group, composed by two contracted graduates (Drs. R. Posada and M. López, chemists), and one PhD FPI fellow (Jose Carlos Castilla). The group collaborates permanently with Drs. Manuel Cantos and José Luís Garcia (Plant Propagation and Physiology, IRNAS), Dr. Magdalena Grifol (Univ. Barcelona) in the national projects, and, recently, with Prof. M.L. Moya, Physicochemistry Department, University of Seville, and with Dr. Carmen Fernandez, professor and researcher of the University Center of Defense at the General Air Academy of San Javier (Murcia). Likewise, the group has a solid international profile, collaborating frequently, as reflected in the publications, with researchers from other countries, such as Germany (L. Wick), Holland (J. Parsons) and the United Kingdom (Ian Thompson).
