Professor Ottoline Leyser awarded Genetics Society Medal

last modified Apr 20, 2015 06:05 PM

Professor Ottoline Leyser has been awarded the Genetics Society Medal for 2016. 

The award given annually by the Genetics society seeks to recognise outstanding research contributions to genetics.  

Professor Leyser is the second scientist whose research focusses on plants to be awarded the medal in recent years, following on from Caroline Dean in 2007.

Recipients are invited to deliver a lecture at a Genetics Society meeting, where the medal will be awarded.  The medal recipient is elected annually on the basis of nominations made by any individual member of the Genetics Society.

New insights could help plants fortify walls against root pathogens

Sep 03, 2020

Sainsbury Laboratory Cambridge University (SLCU) researchers, as part of a multidisciplinary international team, have uncovered a mechanism controlling subtle changes to the architecture of cell walls in plant roots that bolsters their defence against Phytophthora palmivora without negatively affecting plant growth.

Cells in tight spaces – how the cytoskeleton responds to different cell geometries

Jul 09, 2020

Inside every living cell, there is a network of protein filaments providing an interior scaffold controlling the cell’s shape called the cytoskeleton. Research from the Sainsbury Laboratory Cambridge University (SLCU) suggests that this relationship might actually be two-way, with cell geometry itself having the capacity to influence the organisation of the cytoskeleton in living plant cells.
