Date:10/13/2008

ntifying and optimizing algal species for carbon dioxide uptake, as well as for biofuel production. Focus areas include:

-- modification of species using molecular tools

-- developing and purification of seed cultures

-- identifying and eliminating bioreactor contamination

-- growth kinetics and optimizing growth conditions

-- operating open and closed algal bioreactors

-- developing and validating harvesting approaches

-- devising and integrating processing technologies

-- recovering byproducts and reclaimed water.

In addition to announcing the Center for Integrated Algal Research, MRI also announced the appointment of Stanley Bull, Ph.D., as Director of Energy Programs, a newly created position at MRI. Bull, formerly Associate Director for Science and Technology at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) and MRI Vice President, assumed responsibilities for MRI's Energy Programs effective Oct. 1, 2008.

"Energy research is a top priority at MRI, and we selected an energy director who not only has excellent business and technical skills but also a passion for science and scientific discovery," said Helmstetter. Bull has extensive experience in leading and managing R&D programs in renewable energy and energy efficiency, and provided leadership for NREL's biofuels program, including the Aquatic Species Program for more than 20 years.

Bull has a Ph.D. and M.S. from Stanford University and a B.S. from the University of Missouri-Columbia. His degrees are in chemical engineering and mechanical engineering. Professional recognition and honors include a Senior Fulbright-Hays Professorship in Grenoble, France, and the Secretary of Energy Outstanding Program Manager Award.
