Aquaporins and the water household of a plant

Congratulations to David Israel on being granted funding from the Finnish Cultural Foundation to continue his doctoral research project on the ecophysiology of aquaporin’s role in plant function, supervised by Matthew Robson and Janusz Zwiazek.

David is currently in Edmonton visiting Janusz Zwiazek’s group at the University of Alberta, where he is growing PIP aquaporin mutants of Arabidopsis in hydroponics to test their role in root architecture and function.
