Dr. Duane Moser
Associate Research Professor, Microbiology

Professional Interests

Dr. Moser is a microbial ecologist focused on life in the terrestrial and marine subsurface, lakes and oceans, and arid lands and their use for a range of practical applications (e.g. bioremediation and water reuse). He utilizes a combination of cultivation-based and molecular life detection methods, in conjunction with environmental and stable isotope chemistry, to track the activities and identities of microbes in their natural habitats.

Research Summary

Moser directs the Environmental Microbiology and Astrobiology Labs at the Desert Research Institute (DRI) in Las Vegas, focusing on a range of habitats and their microbial inhabitants, ranging from the deep continental and marine subsurface, to geothermal and hypersaline natural environments, to terminal lakes and freshwaters. Additional work focuses on the human microbiome, eDNA, and molecular archaeology.

Environmental Microbiology Laboratory

The Environmental Microbiology Laboratory, located in Las Vegas, Nevada, is a versatile platform supporting the study of microorganisms in the environment. The major tools of this facility are designed to be implemented as modules applicable to almost any sample type, with a current emphasis on deep aquifers and the continental subsurface, freshwater lake sediment, and desert springs.

Research and employment opportunities at all levels (undergraduate – postdoctoral) are often available in our lab. Several types of scholarships may also be available throughout the year for students with strong academic credentials.
