Davide Bulgarelli (Keynote)Principal Investigator at the Division of Plant Sciences at University of Dundee, UK
Topic: Plants - microbiota interactions at the root - soil interface as drivers of mineral dynamics in soil
Davide Bulgarelli got his PhD in plant biology and crop production at the University of Milan (Italy). A post-doc position in the lab of Paul Schulze-Lefert at the MPI in Cologne (Germany) brought Davide in contact with the plant microbiota and it was “love at first sight.”
In 2013, Davide moved to Scotland (UK), where he established his own lab and he is currently Principal Investigator at the Division of Plant Sciences, University of Dundee. Divide’s research focuses on understanding the genetic relationships between a plant genome and its associated microbiota, and how these relationships can be exploited to sustainably enhance crop production.
