Ronald F. Turco
Ronald F. Turco, Jr. earned two B.S. degrees from the University of Idaho; the first is in Soil Science (1979) and his second is in Microbiology (1980). He received his Ph.D. in Soil Microbiology from Washington State University in 1985. Dr. Turco joined the faculty of Purdue University in 1985 and is currently a Professor in the College of Agriculture. Dr. Turco is the Director of the Environmental Pathogens Information Network (EPI-Net.org) and the Director of the Indiana Water Resource Research Center (IWRRC.org). Dr. Turco works with a number of research programs across the Purdue Campus and the country. He collaborates with faculty in Purdue's Colleges of Engineering and Science as well as working with the Purdue Climate Change Research Center and the Center for the Environment. Dr. Turco's research program is divided into three major areas of investigation: The Environmental Fate of Pathogens, The Environmental Fate of Organic Chemicals and the use of Biological Processes to Produce Fuel. Currently work in his laboratory is addressing the role of dissolved organic carbon in surface water in supporting the survival of E. coli and the potential of waterborne E. coli and Salmonella to colonize and survive on vegetable surfaces. Dr. Turco used his interest in pathogens to underpin the formation of EPI-Net.org a major resource on the impact of pathogens in the environment. Other work involves the environmental impact of fullerenes (C60) and signal wall carbon nanotubes (SWNT) on soil processes; this work is also addressing the environmental fate of more traditional organic chemicals such as pesticides. Dr. Turco's has recently initiated a project looking at the potential to use food and agricultural waste to produce CH4 and possibly methanol. As the Water Center Director, Dr. Turco is also working on a project to address the revitalization of the Wabash River corridor by proving expertise that will help minimize the occurrence of pathogenic bacteria. Dr. Turco teaches classes on Soil Ecology, Soil Microbiology and The Environmental Fates of Organics. Over the 20 years he has been at Purdue University, Dr. Turco has been collaborator or lead PI on projects that have resulted in some $8 million dollars in competitive grant funds. Most recently he has been the lead PI on nanomaterials projects supported by NSF and EPA, EPI-net and a food safety effort supported by USDA and new USDA-CEAP project addressing water issues in Eagle Creek Reservoir near Indianapolis. He has served on numerous review panels for federal and private funding agencies. Ronald F. Turco, Jr. Professor, Laboratory for Soil Microbiology College of Agriculture Purdue University 915 W.
