Plant redox biology and stress responses. Role of primary processes, particularly photosynthesis and respiration, in generating signals that regulate plant growth and defence responses. Work is focussed on on model plants (Arabidopsis thaliana) and on crops such as soybean, maize, barley and wheat. Current projects include (1) redox regulation of the plant cell cycle, (2) WHIRLY and the late embryogenesis abundant protein (LEA)5 function in chloroplasts, (3) cysteine and serine protease inhibitor functions in the control of stress-induced senescence, (4) interactions between high light, nitrogen deficiency and aphid resistance.
Company Members oversee all aspects of the ownership, support and operation of the Company itself and of its three published titles Annals of Botany, AoB PLANTS and AoBBlog. Professor Foyer has additional responsibilities towards AoBBlog.
