CNBP welcomes its latest PhD candidate Fuyuan Zhang who will study under the supervision of Center ARC Future Fellow A/Prof. Guozhen Liu at Macquarie University.
Fuyuan’s project is to develop assays to detect plant microRNA, diagnostic markers for response to pathogen or virus infection in plants, and subsequently to integrate these assays to an in vivo device for plant disease early diagnosis.
Funded by the Cotutelle PhD program between Macquarie University and Tianjin University of Science and Technology (TUST), China, Fuyuan has expertise in the design of assays for detection of toxins in food samples; the preparation of fluorescent nanomaterials; and the development of computer simulations and modelling .
Welcome to the CNBP team Fuyuan!
