Programmed cell death in seeds
“I am a graduate biologist (Diplôme d'Ingénieur, Ecole de Biologie Industrielle, France) and also have an MSc in Environmental Diagnostics (Cranfield University, UK). My PhD was carried out with the University of Sussex and my supervisors were Dr Ilse Kranner (Kew, Wakehurst Place) and Dr Steve Pearce (University of Sussex). I studied molecular and biochemical markers of seed viability with a particular interest in programmed cell death.”
