Our laboratory, led by Dr. Carl Mesarich, investigates the molecular basis of plant–microbe interactions.
The main goal of our research is to develop a comprehensive understanding of these interactions, with the goal of better informing disease resistance breeding programmes.
Dr. Mesarich received his B.Sc. and M.Sc. (in Biological Sciences) and his PhD in Molecular Plant Pathology from the University of Auckland (in conjunction with the New Zealand Institute for Plant and Food Research Limited).
His postdoctoral research was at the New Zealand Institute for Plant and Food Research Limited (Bioprotection Group; 2015) and Wageningen University, the Netherlands (Laboratory of Phytopathology; 2012–2014).
