Miss Claire Drurey

Claire is a postgraduate student working in the lab of Professor Saskia Hogenhout at the John Innes Centre. She investigates the interactions between aphids and the plants that they feed on using molecular biology and insect assays. Claire gets to study both plant immunity and entomology (insect science). Through this research she hopes to reduce crop losses to aphids and aphid-transmitted diseases.
