Projects per year
The Plant Sciences Theme has broad interests, which address many aspects of Plant Biology and includes groups in The Sainsbury Laboratory.
Research in the theme includes looking at plant resistance to parasites and pathogens, studying molecular and physiological adaptations to biotic and abiotic stress, identifying signalling mechanisms in plant responses to disease and using RNA silencing as an antiviral mechanism.
We welcome enquiries from prospective PhD students, postdocs and fellows. We also run a successful MSc in Plant Genetics and Crop Improvement
