Physiology and Cell biology

The research in plant cell molecular biology addresses fundamental questions in plant growth, response to stress and production of secondary metabolites. Topics being pursued include elucidating the role of chaperones and proteases in higher plants and cyanobacteria, regulatory mechanisms in plant photosynthetic membranes, protein trafficking system and plant pathogen responses.

The research in animal physiology addresses fundamental and applied questions in areas of development, growth and metabolism, cardiovascular and gastrointestinal physiology, endocrinology and aquatic toxicology, using integrative approaches from the molecular and cellular levels to the organismal and ecophysiological levels. The research concerns primarily physiological functions of fish and marine invertebrates, using model species, aquacultured species, as well as animals from wild populations.
