Led by Dr. Wei Zhang (Plant, Soil and Microbial Sciences), this project aims to investigate mechanisms governing adsorption of PrPSc to soil surfaces and its influence on bioavailability, persistence, and transmission; and to develop in situ sensors for measurement of bioavailable metal concentrations in soils.
