Call for Case studies
Microbiology impacts many of the SDGs in different ways and we have selected three areas where microbiology has large and interesting contributions to make: antimicrobial resistance, the circular economy and soil health.
Have you been working on an innovative project with exciting results? Are you working in an interdisciplinary way with other researchers and stakeholders to further the reach of microbiology? Or maybe you just have a great story to tell about your research? We are currently asking members working in the fields of antimicrobial resistance, soil health and the circular economy to send us case studies that will be showcased on our website, promoted on social media, an may be edited for inclusion in the reports.
View our current case studies below:
Explore a range of case studies that focus on soil health, including enhancing crop performance using soil microbes, how microbiologists are hoping to help fix the problem of nitrogen limitation in agriculture, and the use of indigenous micro-organisms in the sustainable farming of Amaranthus hybridus.
Explore a range of case studies that focus on Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) including, using existing drugs to make bacteria susceptible to antibiotics, how ecology can affect antibiotic resistance, and if Victorian water treatment technologies are fit for the AMR era?
Explore a range of case studies that focus on the Circular Economy, including using bacteria to develop sustainable infrastructure, searching for a sustainable solution to the seaweed inundations on Caribbean beaches, and whether cyanobacteria could be promising solution to ensuring a circular economy and establishing a sustainable future.
Suggested case study structure:
We are looking for case studies that are 400–800 words long. If you already have a great story in mind and know how you would like to tell it then please structure your story the way you want to tell it. If you would like more structure and guidance to help you tell your story, then please feel free to use the framework below.
- What are the challenges/needs that this research/initiative addresses?
- What findings and solutions were provided by this research/initiative?
- How can this research/initiative support the transition to a more sustainable future?
- What is the future for research and innovation in this area?
