John Vaughan-Hirsch

I joined CPIB after completing a BSc Hons in Biology at Royal Holloway, University of London in 2013. My PhD project, funded by the BBSRC Doctoral Training Partnership, involves investigating the cytokinin signalling pathway in rice with the aim of elucidating the molecular mechanisms controlling root vascular patterning. Data from my project will contribute to a mathematical model which aims to give a detailed account of how different vascular patterns are specified.
