Juan Carlos De la Concepcion

Postdoctoral Scientist Plant Health

Juan is working towards understanding the mechanistic basis of pathogen recognition by plant immune receptors.

To this end, he combines molecular biology, biochemistry and structural biology to learn how these receptors binds pathogen molecules, and how they activate an effective immune response to stop pathogen’s colonisation.

With that information Juan hopes to contribute to the ultimate goal of engineering new disease resistance in crops.
