We are  a foundation committed to research in environmental microbiology and social development

Adriana Torres-Ballesteros


At mind the microbes, we believe that working together we  will find the best solutions for the  environmental challenges our planet faces today. We have dedicated our lives to work for the environment — doing research in microbiology  and supporting company sustainable projects in Colombia, Brazil and United Kingdom. We want all individuals and organisations to envision their goals and realise they have the ability to make a contribution to a sustainable development.
