Allen Discovery Center at Tufts
The Lab has started a collaboration with the group of Prof. Mike Levin and the Tufts Center for Regenerative and Developmental Biology, at Tufts University in Boston (MA, U.S). As part of the collaboration, the Lab has been offered an affiliation with the prestigious Allen Discovery Center at Tufts University, part of the Paul G. Allen Frontiers Group. The collaborative project is to study the roles of endogenous bioelectric patterns in plant morphogenesis.
We are very keen to build on the exciting data already collected in our Lab, on the effects of electric fields on root regeneration!
Frankie Butera, Shayna Kam Lin and Chen Lyu joined the lab for their final year projects.
Todd Fallesen is joining the lab to take over Rico's work on our light-sheet microscope. Todd is an experienced experimental physicist who brings to the lab knowledge and enthusiasm. We all look forward to sharing with him fun science. Welcome, Todd!
Anne-Mieke is a theoretical physicist joining the Lab as an Erasmus Master student, to apply morphometric analyses to the Arabidopsis root. Her project is in close collaboration with Dr Gunnar Pruessner (Dep. Mathematics). Welcome to the underground world of plant roots!
