The Hazen Lab
The Hazen Lab is a diverse group of post doctoral fellows, research associates, graduate students, undergraduates and visiting professors in microbial ecology and environmental engineering that are led by Dr. Terry C. Hazen. The primary research emphasis of the lab is basic and applied field microbial ecology, especially as it relates to bioremediation, biofuels, enhanced oil recovery, and water quality. The overarching vision for the lab is understanding the fundamental concepts of systems biology and environmental stress response pathways from the molecular to the ecosystem level to improve our knowledge of biogeochemistry.

- Kaela O'Dell who is an undergraduate doing research in the Hazen Lab for the past year won 2 awards in the EUReCA (Exhibition of Undergraduate Research and Creative Achievement) on April 16, 2014. Her work focused on characterization of bacteria that can degrade lignin from the deep sea. Her awards were for best poster in the College of Arts and Sciences and a bronze award for best natural sciences poster across the University. Note: She is a Microbiology major. She was also one of 6 undergraduates presenting research from the Hazen lab more than any other research group.
- Noor Alshibli who is an undergraduate doing research in the Hazen Lab for the past 2 years won 2 awards in the EUReCA (Exhibition of Undergraduate Research and Creative Achievement) on April 16, 2014. Her work focused on genomic analysis of Microbial Communities that can degrade oil from the deep sea, it included the internship that she did last summer at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. Her awards were for best poster in the College of Arts and Sciences and a bronze award for best natural sciences poster across the University. Note: Noor is a BCMB major. She was one of 6 undergraduates presenting research from the Hazen lab more than any other research group.
