Many thanks for visiting the website of Dr Estrella Luna-Diez research lab. We are a team of researchers based at the University of Birmingham, in the UK. Our research interests are driven by the exceptional ability of plants to adapt to hostile environments and we investigate the molecular, genetic, biochemical and epigenetic mechanisms that mark plant defence responses to diseases. Our research aims to make the plant immune system stronger so that plants are able to fight diseases better.
Please find more information about our research projects here.
Lots of opportunities to join the team can be found here.
We thank our sponsors for providing the funding and support which allow us to carry out our research.
