Joshua Crittenden — Duke University Superfund Center’s Community Advisory Board Meeting presentation

Joshua Crittenden, Superfund Center trainee with Project 5, spoke at the Duke University Superfund Center Community Advisory Board’s annual meeting on July 16, 2021.

His talk, “Identification & isolation of PAH degrading fungi & bacteria in esturine-influenced creosote contaminated sediment”, focused on Joshua’s ongoing bioremediation research aimed at using native and non-native bacteria and fungi to clean up sediment and soils contaminated with polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon (PAH) compounds. The Duke Superfund Center has long-running field sites in the Elizabeth River, VA to study these PAH contaminated sites.
