Professor Wenbo Ma joined The Sainsbury Laboratory in 2020 as a Senior Group Leader. Wenbo studies the molecular mechanisms that underly the interaction between plants and the microbes that lead to disease or immunity. Plant diseases have a devastating impact on agriculture, so understanding how pathogens become virulent and how plants develop immunity is critical for our future sustainability.
The Sainsbury Laboratory recently filmed two new videos with Professor Ma, asking her about her research and why she joined. You can watch them on the Sainsbury Laboratory youtube channel with the links below.
