NWO Vici grant 2019 (€ 1.500.000) for research on "In shape during stress"

  • Testerink, C.S. (Recipient)

Prize: Fellowship awarded competitively


Drought and salinity of the soil present threats to plants, as basic development is impaired under these stressful conditions. Plants mount responses above- and belowground to locally overcome the general block in development. I will investigate how this developmental flexibility is achieved and will exploit it to improve stress resilience.
