CEPLAS association

I am happy to share the news that last month, as the first PhD student in the history, I was accepted to become associated with the Cluster of Excellence on Plant Science (CEPLAS) Graduate School.

Becoming a part of this cluster raises new challenges but also gives new opportunities for collaboration. CEPLAS mission is to contribute new paradigms to solve urgent problems in plant performance and production through exploitation of natural variation and biodiversity. My research project on photosynthetic electron transport chain matches the research programme of Area B of CEPLAS and I believe that I can bring a valuable insight to increasing our understanding of differences between existing types of photosynthesis.

I would encourage you to watch this short video by NationalGeographic, where you can learn why plant science, especially related to breading, is crucial in solving present global challenges.
