The Biodesign Institute at Arizona State University Bioremediation Part 2 of 2 The Biodesign Institute is seeking ways to clean up the planet using naturally occurring or genetically modified organisms. "Project Neptune" is an international effort to build a real-time monitoring system in the Northwest Pacific to explore many aspects of the ocean. As part of this effort, Biodesign is studying organisms and microbes living in extreme environments, such as deep sea vents. These "extremophiles" may have qualities that could be used in cleaning up pollutants/toxins from the environment. Panelists include: George Poste, DVM, Ph.D., Director, the Biodesign Institute; Paul Johnson, Ph.D., Executive Dean, Ira A. Fulton School of Engineering; Bruce Rittman, Ph.D., the Biodesign Institute. Guest interviews include: Bruce Rittman, Ph.D., the Biodesign Institute; Deirdre Meldrum, Ph.D., Dean, Ira A. Fulton School of Engineering and a research director at the Biodesign Institute. Learn more. Visit http://www.azpbs.org/asuspotlight
