Dr. Roger Innes received a doctoral degree in molecular biology from the University of Colorado. He completed his post-doctoral training in the division of plant biology at the University of California, Berkeley. He is currently a professor at the University of Indiana, Bloomington. Dr. Innes’s research focuses on understanding the molecular and cellular basis of disease resistance in plants. Using the Arabidopsis thaliana as a host plant, his lab investigates how R proteins mediate pathogen recognition leading to engineering disease resistance in plants. Currently, his team are applying their findings to engineer novel disease resistance traits in soybeans. The team also investigates endomembrane trafficking in plant cells in the context of active defense responses.
