Nowadays, disciplines seek to combine innovative solutions to face environmental challenges to life on Earth. Everyday, profound scientific initiatives disclose microbial properties that are valuable to understand and to deal with environmental constraints that mankind has made. Therefore, we are convening international and local researchers, within an interdisciplinary scenario, to discuss microbial capabilities and diversity influencing agriscience innovation. We take this opportunity to examine scientific advances towards environmental balances, sustainable development, and societal progress with lessons for innovation. New discoveries are achieved by searching for frontiers in environmental microbiology. We, at Universidad del Turabo and the Puerto Rico Institute for Microbial Ecology Research (PRIMER), recognize our responsibility to search for and carry out research that will provide solutions to environmental constraints and descriptions of novel and intriguing biological phenomena. This is a task for multiple disciplines and a commitment for the global scientific community to achieve transformations.
The PRIMER pursues a better understanding of microbial roles within the Neotropical environment with global impact. We invite you to be part of this journey:
