Welcome to the Lea-Smith group website. The lab is recently established (July, 2017) at the University of East Anglia, on the Norwich Research Park. Our research focuses primarily on cyanobacteria, although we also investigate other microorganisms that may be useful for biotechnology.
Two PhD projects are currently being advertised. Please contact me for further details.
