Summary of main research topics

For innovative and leading plant research in East Africa
Understanding how plants respond and acclimate themselves to various biotic and abiotic stress conditions is useful to generate future crops endowed with ‘stress resistance’. However, the application of stress-resistant crops must be conducted from a global standpoint, which necessitates international collaboration in a timely and strategic manner. Currently, this team aims to develop a research network in east Africa, in collaboration with Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology (JKUAT) in Kenya. Through this research network, our institute accepts graduate students and researchers, who conduct various projects in disciplines related to plant stress science. The group also organizes international meetings, both domestically and abroad, to accelerate networking.InCo
