The main goal of my lab is to understand the mechanisms that control meristematic activity and flowering of orchid plants, as well as their potential application.

HeleniceProf. Dr Helenice Mercier
My group studies plant development, focusing on plant hormones, nitrogen nutrition, ROS and nitric oxide signaling and CAM metabolism. Effects of drought and urea nutrition on water transport and urea transport through aquaporins are also investigated. The group uses bromeliads as model systems.

Luciano FreschiProf. Dr Luciano Freschi
Plant signaling mechanisms in response to the environment
The group uses physiological, biochemical and molecular biology approaches to dissect the complex signaling cascades responsible for coordinating plant development and metabolism in a constantly changing environment. Signaling events triggered by changes in light, water and nutrient availability are investigated and manipulated in order to provide insights on alternative strategies to generate plants with higher stress resistance or improved nutritional features.
