Dr Rafał Zdrzałek

Postdoctoral Scientist Plant Health

Rafał is investigating plant-pathogen interactions at the molecular level that may help to find new solutions for improving plants’ health and therefore global food security.

He works on engineering plant immune receptors to generate novel recognition specificity and is interested in developing resistance in rice, barley and wheat against blast fungus Magnaporthe oryzae, using structure-based protein engineering.
