CellScapes poster
We are devoted to linking the internal working of a plant cell to its exterior form and function. The lab uses many beautiful plants and cell-types, scintillating "living colours", state-of-the art live-cell imaging and documentation techniques to generate molecular-genetic and cell biological information on plant development and interactions.

Our motto is "Fascination before Education"
