Current Biology Q&A with Giles Oldroyd

last modified Oct 18, 2018 02:39 PM
Current Biology recently interviewed Giles Oldroyd about his research and goals in science and life.

"It is particularly important for me to work in an environment where I feel supported both as a person and as a scientist. I want to be taken seriously whether I have a blue mohawk or I wear a dress."

Giles joined SLCU in October last year. He is leading the project, Engineering the Nitrogen Symbiosis for Africa (ENSA), which is funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. The ENSA team is looking at the signalling and developmental processes that are involved in the interaction of mycorrhizal fungi and nitrogen-fixing. The end goal is to use the understanding of these processes to engineer nitrogen fixation into cereals.
