报 告 人:Menachem Moshelion教授(希伯来大学)

报告人简介:

Current position:   Associate Professor, Robert H. Smith Institute of Plant Sciences and  Genetics in Agriculture, Robert H. Smith Faculty of Agriculture, Food and Environment, the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Head of Undergraduate Studies Program in Plant Sciences in Agriculture,

Research Interest

The molecular and cellular mechanisms controlling whole-plant water-homeostasis, yield productivity, and forest trees survival under normal and abiotic stress conditions.

Major Projects

1.      The role of Solanaceae aquaporins in improving plant vigor, abiotic stress tolerance and yield production.

2.      The regulatory role of aquaporins in controlling plant cell water permeability.

3.      Developing a high-throughput automated screening system for the on-line collection and analysis of data from many plants simultaneously.  Pinpointing plants showing improved transpiration-use efficiency under normal and stress conditions at an early developmental stage.

4.      Development of quantitative criteria to screen forest trees regarding their resistance to water deficiency and water-use efficiency.

5.      The role of C3 bundle-sheath cells as the plant's first line of defense against embolisms and as a sensor for stress-induced ABA
