The group keeps growing!

Thanks to Enhanced Research Funding from the Royal Society, we were recently able to appoint Dr Skylar Johnson as a postdoctoral research associate. Skylar completed her PhD in Biochemistry at Washington State University, studying the functions and biosynthesis pathways of flavins in plants. She will apply her broad molecular biology and bioinformatics skillset to unravel the developmental biology of the micropatterned slippery surface on the trap rim of carnivorous Nepenthes pitchers plants. We can’t wait to welcome Skylar to the team!
