Dr. Christine Faulkner



Dr. Christine Faulkner did her PhD in plant biology at the University of Sydney (Australia) studying proteins that regulate how plant cells communicate with each other. During post-doctoral positions at the University of Edinburgh, the John Innes Centre and the Sainsbury Laboratory, Christine expanded her research expertise to include plant-pathogen interactions and live-cell imaging technologies. Christine was awarded an independent research fellowship to start a research programme on how plant cells communicate during pathogen attack at Oxford Brookes University and in 2013 she moved her research to the John Innes Centre where she is currently a project leader.
